In its 12th year, Banbury Canal Day offered a wonderful themed day out in the heart of Banbury.
With perfect sunny weather, Tooley’s working forge, continental market, canal barges on show, the arts and crafts market and stalls galore, the day attracted thousands of visitors to Banbury canalside.
Planet Neptune coordinated and provided live arts, dance and music for the day on the field at Spiceball.
“Barney Newman, Stuart Layzell, The Next Hot Thing, Phoebe Rose, Leatherat Acoustic Trio and to our artists Paul Austin, Pierangela Manzetti, Emma Louise and Tim Cherry-Jones, with Joanna lending a hand all day. Thanks also to Mark Bigelow, Dean Lee & Amber Honour for the addition of photography and dance.
Gorgeous day and another great event- no surprise there as was organised by the stellar Ann Sewell and team.”
“Just a brilliant day for Banbury and all free and supporting charities”
“Banbury canal day 2015!
Absolutely brilliant day and all round brilliant weather!
Thanks to Banbury council for organising such a wonderful day!”
“I must say that the live music in Spiceball park was a tremendous addition to the atmosphere & attracted significant crowds down there this year, good job people!” – James
“Banbury at its best” – Marc
“It gives BYHP a wonderful opportunity to meet people of the area to showcase what we do with the little added bonus of fund raising”
They probably also had the best game of the show. Guess how many sweets in the jar.
“We’ve been here a couple of hours – lovely day for it, colour everywhere and the boats are decked out (no pun intended) to the nines.
Also seems like more stuff this year. Nice to see that this event, like so many others is growing in popularity and scope.”
“Had a great day at Canal day. Well done to everyone involved. A great day.”
“A great day at Banbury Canal day. Today I was found on the Old Town Association stand, and the Banbury and District Art Society stand, and running in between the two via ice cream vans and Nutella pancake stands!”
