Today Sunday 13th August – Don’t Miss Wednesfield Canal Festival!

Well we are midway through the Wednesfield Canal Festival at Bentley Bridge. Saturday was a magic day, lots of people. Sound of laughter everywhere. Huge interest in the canal, the canal crafts, the floating traders! The weather fab, no rain! Plus the musicians and the singers were belting it out to an appreciative audience.
Wednesfield Canal Festival was indeed rocking!
Here is what one visitor wrote to me last night –

“Mr. Bateman, I drove to the festival today with a 4 year old………Brilliant, the attractions were the right price or by donation and if you can keep a 4 year old happy for 4 and a half hours… have a happy grandad. I have a boat but did not know about this event until too late this year……will the dates for 2018 be 11th and 12th August. I have provisionally booked a week either side to enable me to get from the Trent the Bentley Bridge, can you confirm the dates please. I have told a friend from Scotland about it and he and partner are going to join me and wife for the 2 weeks for the journey.Wonderful event, please keep it going. Nickelodeon facilities fantastic and what more do you need from a retail park.”

Today Sunday 13th August we go about doing it all again.
