JOINT EVENT HOSTED BY THE INLAND WATERWAYS ASSOCIATION AND THE WEY & ARUN CANAL TRUST

The IWA National Trailboat Festival on the Wey & Arun Canal

 

23-25 May 2020

 

A highlight of the UK’s trailboat community calendar, the IWA National  Trailboat Festival next year heads to Surrey and West Sussex on the Wey & Arun Canal. 

OUTLINE PROGRAMME

The festival promises to be packed full of events and entertainment to attract both boaters and non-boaters.

The event will take place on the Summit Level of the Wey & Arun Canal, and the spot where the Wey & Arun Junction Canal was officially opened on the 28th September 1816 by the 3rd Earl of Egremont.

The Summit Level has been a focus for the Wey & Arun Canal Trust’s restoration plans and has seen major renovation in recent years, including the construction of Compasses Bridge and the Thriscutt Slipway, built by Trust volunteers and opened last year.
