Bang! What A Result- 2019 Wednesfield Canal Festival.

The 2019 Wednesfield Canal Festival has again beaten its previous footfall figures for 2018.

A 5.7% increase in footfall or put another way 4,680 attendees is just marvellous.

I want to thank everyone who has played a part in delivering a very good two day canal festival in August for the Wednesfield public.

The partnership between Hands on Wednesfield volunteers, and Bentley Bridge Leisure Park with The Canal and River Trust is a real winner for Wednesfield people.

It’s a great weekend and we shall do it all again next year.

We are still looking at the other aspects of the festival and there is some further information that will be delivered soon.

I want to also thank ‘Hands on Wednesfield’ the volunteer Group who have worked tirelessly to deliver this magnificent festival that gets better and better each year!

Without you this last four years would not have taken place. I Am in awe of everything you do for our Community.
