Fill your August Bank Holiday with all things boating at this three-day festival celebrating boats, boaters and love of the inland waterways.
This year the Inland Waterway Association’s annual Festival of Water is visiting Waltham Abbey on the River Lee.
There will be lots of activities, including fairground rides, craft and food stalls, live music and Morris dancers. Over 120 boats will be dressed up in their finest festival bunting and there will be an illuminated boat procession on the Sunday evening.
This is a brilliant free event which brings thousands of local people and visitors to new stretches of canal each year.
