IWA TO RE­TURN TO WALTHAM ABBEY FOR 2019

Canal Boat - - News -

The In­land Wa­ter­ways As­so­ci­a­tion will be hold­ing a Fes­ti­val of Wa­ter in 2019 af­ter all – and it’s go­ing back to Waltham Abbey, scene of IWA events in the past.

Hav­ing de­cided ear­lier this year to take a break fol­low­ing this year’s event (sched­uled for the Au­gust Bank Hol­i­day week­end at St Neots), the As­so­ci­a­tion has now back­tracked on its de­ci­sion and de­cided that the site on the River Lee Nav­i­ga­tion on the fringes of north east Lon­don fits the bill for next year.

This site is no stranger to IWA events: the for­mer IWA na­tional Wa­ter­ways Fes­ti­val (a pre­de­ces­sor of the Fes­ti­val of Wa­ter) went there three times: in 1989, 1994 and most re­cently (pic­tured) in 2000.
