Banbury Canal Day Swimming With Colour

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.

Suzette Neptune leader of Planet Neptune gave thanks to

“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.”

Deborah Parker​ acting CEO of BYHP said

“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.

Deborah Menikoff Simmons on Facebook said

“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.”
