Sheffield Canal's Big Birthday Bash on Friday 22nd February 2019

60,000 people turned up to watch the very first boats arriving into the heart of the city on this brand new canal back in 1819. To celebrate the bicentenary of the Sheffield & Tinsley Canal we’re having a day-long party.

11am – 3pm

Enjoy family friendly activities including time travelling tours with actors bringing the canal’s past to life, craft activities and more. At 1:30pm our flotilla of boats will arrive at Victoria Quays and we hope everyone will create some noise to welcome them into the quays. All activities will be free between 11am – 3pm.

4:30pm – 7:30pm
