The free event runs from 10.30am to 4.30pm and is organised by the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust, supported by Newbury Town Council.

This year's theme will be 'Let’s Party', to mark the return of the event after a three-year absence.

A flotilla of decorated boats and vessels for the public to take a look inside will be lined up along the canalside and Jubilee will be offering boat trips throughout the event.

In Victoria Park there will be a variety of charity and craft stalls, displays, activities and entertainment for the whole family.
