MOIRA CANAL FESTIVAL
Regrettably, after a committee site meeting on 11/05/2023, we have been forced to cancel the Moira Canal Festival next weekend on 20th & 21st May 2023.
This is due to extremely poor site conditions caused by severe rain over the last couple of weeks. After looking at the weather forecast over the next week, we aren't confident that the site will have dried out enough to safely hold the festival. The staff at the Moira Furnace Museum & Country Park have also expressed their discouragement to the festival taking place due to the significant damage it will cause to the site. As majority of the site and car parking is grassland, it's just not going to be dry by next weekend.
We're really broken-hearted to have to cancel. Watch this space for more details about next years festival.
We can't wait to be back, see you all again soon.
