Saturday 2nd – Sunday 3rd September > Melksham Food & River Festival
Wilts & Berks Canal Trust’s Food & River Festival has been developing over the last few years and now has it’s own website www.melkshamfoodandriverfestival.co.uk .
This year, you can even book your boat in for the Festival via the web site. There are a limited number of pontoons for steam boats and those who need special access the bank. So early bookings, with your comments, would help the organisers ensure we provide you with the best possible opportunity to have a really enjoyable weekend. The Festival team are working hard to improve the Festival year on year and would love you to be part of it.
