CanalFest At Botany Bay
Canalfest runs Sunday 26th / Monday 27th August. We're programmed for the Sunday. Botany Bay (more correctly Canal Mill) is 6 floors of a former spinning mill now a shopping and leisure complex adjacent to J8 M61. CanalFest came about 2 years ago when the Leeds/Liverpool Canal was 200 yrs old. Weather for the last two years has been hot and sunny! This is a great, free, family event, last year 4,000 people came over the 2 days and we got into the finals of the Lancashire Tourism Awards.
