Great day and great place for a canal festival!

Great day and great place for a canal festival!

Ancoats Canal Festival happened again this summer!

In July we  put on our annual Ancoats Canal Festival at the New Islington Marina and Cotton Field Park.

Huge thanks to all the volunteers and our partners below for helping to have such great activities and food during the festival!

All were free of charge to the public!

On top of all this Marco Rea’s famous Ancoats ice cream van was also on site. With over one hundred years experience making and selling ice cream in the ‘Little Italy’ section of Ancoats  – a real piece of local ice cream heritage!

Thanks to Urban Splash for use of the marina and park!

Thanks to our local bobbies from GMP for their help and finally thanks to all of the people who attended and made it such a great day!
