Please be aware of increased navigation traffic and likely congestion at locks
and pinch points that may be experienced causing some delays in the

area via Bedford Town Lock and Cardington Lock on the Friday (22 July)
before and Monday (25h July) after the event. Please follow any instructions
given by Environment Agency staff, volunteers or Festival Officials and
Marshalls on site or at local lock sites.
