The 2007 Festival Director welcomes Baroness Barbara Young, Chief Executive of the Environment Agency
The 2007 Festival Director, Sid Fisher, welcomes Baroness Barbara Young, Chief Executive of the Environment Agency and guests who have arrived appropriately by river to officially open the 2007 IWA National River Festival.
For more two weeks in August 2007 in St Ives it rained making the job of setting up the UK's largest river festival a very difficult job as the pictures entitled Building the Event witness. However the hard work an perseverance was well worth it because as the deadline approached the rain stopped and the sun finally came out.
From the menu on the left you can view just a few of the pictures we took to record the event. We have made this section a permanent addition to the St Ives town website in the hope that in the not to distant future they will come back to St Ives and do it all over again.
