Nottingham Canal Festival returns to the city’s historic Castle Wharf this weekend to celebrate all that’s great about the local canals and the River Trent.

Last year more than 3,000 people descended on Castle Wharf to take part in the festival’s activities.

The first Nottingham Canal Festival was a great success – it brought thousands of people down to the canalside to enjoy a boat trip, try their hand at fishing, enjoy some of the traditional music or just have a bite to eat in a really friendly atmosphere.

“This year will have all those really popular attractions again but we also want to build on last year’s success and encourage more people to come down and experience what life is like by the waterside.”

– Danny Brennan, Canal & River Trust’s East Midlands Waterway Partnership
