Course information

Ablaze will light up the Kennet and Avon Canal with spectacular fire sculptures and live music between the 13-15 September 2024 as part of the Corn Exchange Newbury's Outdoor Arts Programme and 101 Outdoor Arts‘ 10 year anniversary celebrations.

Throughout the 3 days of the event between 7.30pm & 9.45pm over 10,000 people will promenade along the route to see the 40 floating fire braziers before arriving in Victoria Park for a Fire Garden spectacle.

We are looking for 12 confident and capable volunteers to be part of our event Boat Crew who will be responsible for refuelling 40 fire braziers that will be floating on the canal along the route.

Boat Crew volunteers will need to attend a practical briefing session on Sunday 8th September from 11am-1pm and be available on at least two of the event nights (13-15 September) between 6pm-11pm.

All training will be provided.
