Busy Canal Festival Weekend

Phew! What a busy weekend we had at the Moira Furnace site. The annual Canal Festival brought in hundreds of visitors with the weather being kind to us - if not quite the scorcher that we had last year.

It was great to see so many people enjoying a whole range of events including rides, performers and displays. Alongside all of that we welcomed many visitors to the Museum and ran boat trips every 25 minutes throughout both days.

Thank you to all involved in making it such a success - the site really does come alive when we play host.

There are plenty more events planned throughout the Summer season so make sure you keep in touch through Facebook and our Website. You wouldn’t want to miss out on a great family day out.
