Idle Women of the Wartime Waterways

Tales of cargo, calamities and cocoa! A double bill of theatre, poetry and music to whisk you back to the days of World War II when a shortage of crews to keep the working boats going brought a new breed of boater to the canal. Young women, later nicknamed the Idle Women, took on 72′ narrow boats with 55 tons of war supplies and a whole new way of life. Tickets £10 for adults or £8 for over 65s available at the Library or via Eventbrite.
