Banbury Canal Day has grown from a small provincial event to one that attracts boaters, crafters, traders and visitors from all over the country. The main thrust of the day is to be the canal itself, with commercial boats booked in and water taxis to move visitors around the site.
The Mill Arts centre opens its doors for a day of entertainment, food and drink whilst General Foods Garden hosts a free folk concert adjacent to the towpath. Sovereign Wharf is the place to be for boat rides whilst being entertained by barrel organs whilst you wait to board. Tooley's historic boatyard displays engines and boats, with a chance to watch a blacksmith at work.
Hook Norton Brewery will keep the ale rolling and ample food outlets keep the hunger at bay.
