Banbury Canal Day 2017 is back on.

Banbury Canal Day 2017 is back on.

Canal Day in Banbury this year is ‘on’ again after a delay to building work planned for the waterside.

Organisers Banbury Town Council are working flat out to contact boaters, charities, clubs, businesses and others who make the event the busy, exciting day out that people have come to expect.

Already the response has been positive and visitors are guaranteed a variety of stalls including food vendors, music courtesy of Banbury Folk Festival, funfair, and plenty of water-based action.

Mayor Cllr Colin Clarke said:

“Canal Day is a massive event with around 12,000 visitors – some travelling long distances to get here.

“It is good news that we can have the event this year when all seemed lost. I want to thank Castle Quay for telling us of the change of plan as soon as they were aware of it.

“Many boaters – especially traders – plan their year with Banbury Canal Day in mind and we hope they are still available.”

Entertainment in Spiceball Park will include falconry, go-karts, and traders, and there will be workshops outside The Mill.

Paul Jackson, Castle Quay’s centre manager, said:

“The start date for CQ2 was put back and we realised straight away that Canal Day could go ahead as usual.

“It is an event that attracts many thousands of people and is good for the town. We hope the day is a massive success and we are delighted to sponsor the event once again.”

The council’s events manager Ann Sewell said:

“We have two months to organise something that normally takes nine months – but rest assured this year will be an exciting and entertaining event with something for everyone.”

Canal Day 2017 was cancelled earlier this year because demolition and construction work – part of the Castle Quay Two expansion – on the canalside north of General Foods Social Club was to have started in August.

But the work will not now begin until after the traditional Canal Day date – this year October 1.
