Organised by Foxton Inclined Plane Trust events include Crafts, Canal
societies, fun games, demonstrations, refreshments boat trips and lots more.
Be awestruck by the Viking re-enactment group; indulge yourself in the real ale tent and at the food concessions; gyrate to the live music (including late into the evening on the Saturday); "shop 'til you drop" at over 100 tented craft stalls; reminisce over the historic vehicles; encourage the kids on to the rides and admire the animals in pets corner.
Set alongside the fascinating Foxton Locks you will also have an opportunity to admire a large number of brightly painted boats gracing the canal side and sit in one of the canal-side pubs or cafe to watch the world pass by.
All proceeds from the festival support the charitable trust restoring the marvel of Victorian engineering - the Inclined Plane boat lift - there will be working models, displays and experts on hand to tell you more. Be part of the continued regeneration of this historic site.
