Raising awareness of, and money for, the restoration, extension and maintenance of the Ashby Canal


Whether it is a Battle of Britain Memorial Fight flypast, Morris dancing, children's crafts, local bands and singers, historical re-enactment or something more unusual...

There is always something to entertain the whole family at the Moira Canal Festival ! 

More entertainment coming soon!

Dangerous Steve

The Dangerous Steve show will  astound you. Steve is a one man street theatre entertainer who knows how to get the audience involved with his knockabout humour.  And, you won't believe what he can do with his chainsaws...
