‘Musicians on the Wharf’ will feature performances from seven groups on stage between 2pm and 5pm. The free outdoor concert has been promoted by us, as part of the Heritage Lottery- funded project to restore the Montgomery Canal.

The Odd Bods, Morton Choir, Café Lola, Penndragon, Oswestry String Quartet, Roleplay Theatre and local youngsters promise to keep the audience entertained for three hours in the idyllic rural setting next to the canal. The Wharf visitor centre will be open and refreshments available.

Sylvia Edwards, our Montgomery Canal community development officer, explained: "This is a marvellous opportunity to showcase local talent in this beautiful waterside location. It is one of a number of free community activities being organised as part of the canal restoration project. We want people to get involved with their local waterway and what better way than through the power of music."

Llanymynech is on the border of Powys and Shropshire. Free parking is available close to the event site, which can be found following the postcode SY22 6EA. Follow the local Canal & River Trust on Twitter @CRTNWalesBorder.
