The 45th Newbury Crafty Craft event will take place on Monday 6th May. 

This well-loved, family friendly event captures the imagination of local charities, organisations, clubs and businesses as they race their way along the canal from Kintbury to Newbury on homemade crafts. Who will be the winners?


Rafts can be pre-fabricated or completely homemade and the theme for this year's event is the history of Newbury. The rafts arrive in to Newbury by Victoria Park and are welcomed by members of the public. There are stalls, children's rides and food offerings for everyone to enjoy. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Naomi House & Jacksplace. For further details  please visit
