For a weekend in the summer, come and enjoy free family fun in Stratford-upon-Avon with music, narrow boats on the River Avon, craft and food stalls, family zone, charity stalls, illuminated boat parade and spectacular fireworks.....
The banks of the Avon will again be home to this unique festival, bringing together boaters and the local community to enjoy a feast of river and land based entertainment.
There will be something for everyone with a full programme based on the recreation ground, using the bandstand area and a pontoon stage moored alongside. Throughout the day there will be land and water based activity, a whole host of stalls, market traders and a family zone with interactive education and entertainment.
Working with the Inland Waterways Association (Warwickshire Branch), the Avon Navigation Trust, the Stratford & Warwick Waterways Trust, the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal Society, Bancroft Cruisers, Stratford Marina and Avon Boating, StratForward will build on the success of the three previous festivals, and enhance and enlarge the visitor experience.
