Subject: Canal Festival this weekend (in Hackney)

Dear Friends,

Please note that there will be a 2-day festival along the Regent's Canal towpath this weekend.

This runs on Saturday 16th July and Sunday 17th July. From 1pm to 10pm each day.

This will involve road closures to the immediate north of the canal, between Whitmore Road and Goldsmith's Row, and the whole towpath will be a no cycling zone between these points.

If you are able to visit this area on either of these days then I recommend that you go along, to explore a different part of the canal in a different context. This is the first time that this festival has ever been staged on the canal.

The Friends of Regent's Canal will be working jointly with British Waterways this weekend, to help to publicise the alternative cycle route.

Best wishes,

Ian Shacklock
Chair, Friends of Regent's Canal
