Narrowboat Keppel Appeal

Canal boats are an important part of the Middlewich FAB Festival so we are pleased to publicise an appeal that has just been launched to restore narrowboat Keppel as a floating education resource.

Can you help us by displaying this poster? Click here for a large version. If you could print it and display it somewhere prominent, that would be FAB!

Yes it`s FREE but that's not the only reason it`s FAB!

Up to 15 venues host music and dance from lunchtime on Friday through to Sunday night. On the canalside and in the town centre, artists from around the UK (and beyond) perform to 1000s of visitors each day.

Together with 100s of canal boats and town centre setting, Middlewich FAB (folk and boat) Festival continues to provide a fabulous showcase of live entertainment each June - join us?

Like many events we rely on volunteer help so if you would like to get involved in June contact me. Likewise if you have ideas or recommendations please let me know- events@middlewich.org.uk
