IWA National Trailboat Festival to come to the Wey & Arun

The Trust is to host the IWA National Trailboat Festival in 2020.

The three-day event will take place at the Summit Level at Alfold/Dunsfold over the Bank holiday weekend of May 23-25.

Trailboats from across the UK are expected to attend the festival, which will also be open to the public, with a full programme of entertainment planned for all ages.

Boats will launch from the Thriscutt Slipway, which was built by Trust volunteers and opened last year, and get a close-up view of canal restoration.

It is hoped the festival will significantly help the Trust’s work in publicising the canal in the Cranleigh/Alfold/Dunsfold area.
