Mon 26 Aug AFLOAT: A Creative Parade Of Boats

Details

Castleford Locks will become our very own version of Italy as AFLOAT: A Creative Parade of Boats takes to the water.

The event draws inspiration from the Regata Storica which has taken place for hundreds of years in the ‘floating city’ of Venice.

Edgelands Arts will be working with communities to create a parade of boats down the Aire and Calder canal from Knottingley to Castleford. It will tell the story of the two towns and the history of this waterway.

Wave them on as they set sail in this huge spectacle, or join the finish line at Castleford Lock where there will be food stalls, a bar and a host of creative workshops and performances.
