The Flotilla

Canalival By Canalival

The central nervous system of Canalival. A caravan of calamity that will shepherd all vessels on a journey to the unknown wilds of east London and beyond. The Atilla the Hun of flotillas and fun.

Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Floating high above the scores of dinghies, lilos, giant rubber ducks and other weird and wonderful flotation devices can be found The Canalival art boats. These Art boats form the heart of the flotilla and create the line and blaze the trail of Canalival 2013.

This calamitous caravan is the heart of the carnival, playing host to big sound systems, samba bands, DJ's, circus performers, dancers, unicorns, freaks, monkeys, models and monsters.

This, Ladies and Gentlemen is the base of the party pie. Throw in the rest and lets get gooey.

What we'll deliver:

  • Create a massive floating figure head to lead the carnival.
  • Program and Decor several floats with live DJs, Bands, dancers and performers.

Why it's a great idea:

Canalival is an exercise in British eccentricity, a calamitous cavalcade that exists for one day for no other reason then to have fun, bring people together and celebrate the British summer time as it should be celebrated; getting wet with a gin & Tonic in hand.

Join us starting midday, June 1st, where the canal passes Gainsborough Studios.

East London needs a carnival of its own and the Regents Canal is the perfect place to host it. Lots of people are unaware of our canal network and we strive to raise awareness of this amazing natural beauty by showing people that the canals of London belong to them.

Steps to get it done:

  • Organise Boats and floating devices to act as our floats.
  • Collaborate with some of the Uk's best carnival, festival and party crews.
  • Book some of the best DJs, Bands and performers this great city has to offer.
  • Organise all tech requirements.
  • Let everyone know about it!

CANALIVAL IS A NOT FOR PROFIT, CROWD FUNDED EVENT WITH A LEAVE NO TRACE POLICY. ANY FUNDS LEFT OVER WILL BE DONATED TO THE CANAL & RIVER TRUST CHARITY WHO MAINTAIN THE CANALS.
