Moira Canal Festival – cancelled for 2020, and new date set for 2021!

Moira Canal Festival Cancellation – official notice issued on 20th March 2020

The Moira Canal Festival committee has been monitoring the current evolving public health advice regarding COVID-19 outbreaks across the UK. They have regrettably made the decision to postpone this year’s Moira Canal Festival, 2020.

Geoff Pursglove has been involved with the event since it began in 2000. “We feel we have a responsibility to act in the best interest of our visitors, entertainers, traders and volunteers” he said. “This decision has not been taken lightly, but to be positive, we are now planning to hold what would have been our 20th Anniversary festival this year, on 22nd and 23rd May next year, – 2021!”
