Held over the weekend of 19th - 20th September, sunny weather helped to ensure a well attended and most enjoyable event. Nearly 5000 people came and the event car park was filled to over-flowing, while the banks from Streethay to Whittington were lined with Vintage, Private and Trade narrowboats.
Organised jointly by the Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust and the Lichfield Cruising Club. The organisers wish to say a big thank you to all those who worked so hard to make the event such a success.
