Welcome On behalf of The Inland Waterways Association, I would like to wish you all a very warm welcome to our 35th IWA Canalway Cavalcade here at Brownings Pool at Little Venice. As you look around these wonderfully decorated boats and try to decide which of them are the best examples of this year’s Cavalcade theme of “Waterways Tales”, it would be natural to think that all must be well with our network of canals and rivers.

Les Etheridge, IWA National Chairman

by its own admission, under threat from lack of funds and some have already been closed for several years. We believe this is totally unacceptable and we are demanding action from MPs and Ministers to keep all these waterways open, with all the recreation, health, environmental and regeneration benefits they provide.

In part you would be right. Many lessons have been learned from the difficult days in the 1950s and ‘60s, when determined IWA volunteers fought tooth and nail against the official policy at the time of closing down, selling off and building over our historic canals. Many villages, towns and cities, parts of London and Birmingham among them, have been regenerated and reinvigorated around their waterways.

While enjoying all the activities here at IWA Canalway Cavalcade you can make a real difference to these and our other campaigns to improve our canals and rivers. Please make a donation to IWA using the buckets around the site or, better still, visit the IWA Marquee in the Amphitheatre area to join IWA and give us your support regularly. There is a special Cavalcade membership offer this weekend, and our volunteers will be delighted to welcome you.

But elsewhere, there is still an enormous amount of work needed from charities such as IWA, where our volunteers campaign to protect and restore the country’s 6,500 miles of canals and rivers. Here in London, the canals are approaching something of a crisis. The growing popularity of living afloat, coupled with the huge demand to visit the capital by boat, is putting the limited facilities in Central London under enormous strain. There are, for instance, only seven public water points for boaters within TfL’s Zones 1 & 2! Clearly that’s not good enough.

Whatever you do, have a great day and enjoy the show. Les Etheridge National Chairman The Inland Waterways Association Use #CanalwayCavalcade on Facebook and Twitter to share your festival experiences.

Idle Women coalfields to collect fuel to bring back to London. Their training was two round trips taking three weeks each at the end of which, if they passed the test, they were awarded their national service badge – with the letters IW for Inland Waterways on it. Which, after the war, led to the nickname the Idle Women.

The Idle Women: Recreating the Journey is an ambitious project by Alarum Theatre to follow the route the wartime women trainees (the Idle Women) worked sharing their stories as they travel. Two latter day Idle Women, Kate Saffin and Heather Wastie perform a double bill of theatre and poetry and music, based on extensive research – including uncovering the real origin of the nickname. They are making the journey with nb Tench a former working boat, which is moored outside Paddington Basin. If you would like to get a glimpse of just how small a space the trainees lived in, please do go and take a look.

Heather is on the left and Kate is on the right.

During both World Wars, the canals, which had been in decline ever since someone had come up with the bright idea of railways, had a brief resurgence. A narrowboat could carry about 25 tons of cargo and didn’t need as much fuel as several lorries and the trains were busy moving troops. However, during the Second World War, whilst there was plenty of work and plenty of boats there weren’t enough good crews. Boating was a reserved occupation but for many of the young men born to the boats, the forces offered a more exciting life. And that’s where the Women’s Training Scheme came in – young women most of whom had never heard of a canal, never mind thought of working on one, took on a pair of 72’ boats and 50 tons of cargo. Their regular journey was from London to Birmingham with war supplies then on to the Coventry

#canalwaycavalcade

You can catch Kate’s play Isobel’s War at 6pm in the marquee on Stone Wharf on Saturday and Heather’s collection of stories in poetry and songs (including a fiendish chorus to join in!) on Sunday at the same time. They can also be found in the marquee on Rembrandt Gardens 11am - 12am on Saturday and Sunday sharing shorter pieces, so drop in for a bit of a sit down and a story. So, come and be whisked back to the waterways of the 1940s - cocoa, coal and calamity! www.alarumtheatre.co.uk

Vote for your Favourite Boats and be in with a chance of winning a prize

These Canalway Cavalcades are such good fun and now you have a chance to get involved too. You are invited to vote for your favourite boat taking part in either one or both of our canal processions.

Vote for the best dressed boat during the Pageant Saturday at 14:45

Vote for the best boat illuminations during the Illuminated Procession Sunday at 21:00

The arrival of the Lord Mayor of Westminster, aboard nb Lady Mildmay (owned by Laburnum Boat Club), at the Horse Bridge marks the beginning of the official opening ceremony for IWA’s Canalway Cavalcade 2017 and the start of the Pageant of Boats. This year’s theme is “Waterway Tales” – whether broadcast on radio or TV, in a film or written about in a book – so look out for lots of inventive dressing up of boats and crews!

The Illuminated Procession of Boats is an opportunity for our boaters to dress their craft and light up the Pool at dusk at about 21.00 on Sunday evening. They are very competitive and will do everything they can to be the most dazzling spectacle of light that their 12 volt batteries and engines will allow!

Watch heart-breaking tragedy and riotous comedy beneath the trees in Norfolk Square Gardens this summer.

1 July 2017 at 7pm

8 September 2017 at 7pm

London-based company Shakespeare in the Squares return to W2 to present the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet on a summer’s evening in Norfolk Square Gardens.

Award-winning outdoor touring theatre company Illyria make their Paddington debut with A Comedy of Errors beneath the tree canopy in Norfolk Square Gardens.

Romeo and Juliet

Director Tatty Hennessy highlights the generational divide between the young and old, and explores the devastating consequences of blindly inherited feuds. The elegant garden square will provide the perfect setting for this specially adapted production, with the story transformed to 1950s Verona.

A Comedy of Errors

Shakespeare’s shortest, funniest, most rambunctious comedy is re-located to the town of Ephesus, Mexico, and will be performed by a 5-piece Mariachi band, resplendent in ponchos and sombreros. Ay caramba!
