Crafty Craft fun this Bank Holiday Monday

The Kennet will be a hive of activity on Monday 6 May when the annual Crafty Craft event takes to the water and Victoria Park.

Started by Newbury Round Table in 1974, Crafty Craft is one of West Berkshire’s largest annual events. It raises thousands for local charities as teams race home-made rafts from Kintbury to Newbury along the canal.


The main event for the public is the fun at the finish line in Victoria Park, from 10am until 4pm.


There will be stalls and activities for all ages, food & music, and Pelham’s fun fair in the adjoining meadows.
