Class 4's trip to the canal

The children in Holy Cross are learning about canals in preparation for the Eldonian Village Canal Festival. 

An Inland Waterways Spectacular!

The Eldonian Village Canal Festival, Liverpool

11th - 12th June 2016

This Festival will be an amazing day out for all the family.

  • Live music including folk, country and brass bands
  • Dancing by local dance troupes,
  • Children's fun activities,
  • Free trip boat
  • Face painting
  • Craft stalls
  • Historic craft to visit

The canalside at Eldonian village will be alive with boats - all decorated with bunting and flowers - making a great picture.  There will also be "Shrek" - a delightful boat horse - visiting with his owner who will be delighted to talk to visitors about how a working boat was towed along the waterways, delivering all kinds of cargoes. 

This event is IWA's 2016 National Campaign Festival and organisers aim to increase leisure activities on a relatively underused part of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal as well as promote the event in celebration of the bi-centenary of the canal. 

Liverpool City Council will also be organising some of the land based entertainment and concessions.
