The Newbury Crafty Craft Race 2014

The race takes place along 5 miles of the Kennet & Avon Canal from Kintbury to Newbury.

All craft start at Kintbury lock.

Craft start times are from 0830.

The finishing line is in Newbury alongside the Victoria Park.

Throughout the day (10:30am to 4:30pm) Victoria Park is the focal point for the fun, with amusements, rides, food outlets and a wide range of attractions to suit all ages.

Parking in Newbury car parks on Bank Holidays is no longer Free!

Thousands of people will be coming to Newbury on Bank Holiday Monday 5th May, for the Annual Crafty Craft Race. In other years, parking has been free on Bank Holidays. This is no longer the case. Car parking will be charged at the FULL daily rate.

The Civil Enforcement Officers (Green Meanies) prowl the town looking for unsuspecting motorists who have contravened the parking regulations.

Also be careful with Parkway Bridge. This bridge is for buses, taxi's and pedestrians - not private cars. The bridge is monitored by CCTV and you will incur a penalty if you drive over it.

Don't ruin your visit to Newbury by incurring a parking penalty!
