Starting from the Chesterfield Canal; up the River Trent our journey detoured along the River Soar this year.  After our Haunts of Norbury and Braunston failing us this year – where did that leave us?   It left us with a lot more more time to go a little further on our journeys.  Bonus!  July we made Cassiobury Park, as we joined with the RCTA Floating Market Traders; a roaring success for us; placing a few pounds in our pockets to finance more of our Journey and ArtWorks.  Onwards from there… Presently we are moored at Mile End with the London Traders.  Lined up this weekend sees an Extraordinaire of Events over the next couple of days, with music taking the foreground,  this is very much to our likings; hosted by The Record Deck UK.  Dates for your diaries 19th 20th and 21st of July at Mile End, London, UK E3 5BH

check out : Lizzy O’Connor https://lizzyoconnor.bandcamp.com/track/white-bones one of the singers I am looking forward to hearing.
