The Outdoor Leisure Show, taking place this August Bank Holiday (24-26 August) has confirmed a partnership with Canoe England, a division of the British Canoe Union, who will be sponsoring the canoeing and kayaking elements of the show.

We will be offering a chance for people to get involved in paddling at the show in what should prove to be a must see event.”

‘Go Canoeing’, the Canoe England Olympic legacy project, will be attending the Outdoor Leisure Show as part of the Canoe Village section within the showground, and enabling visitors to enjoy taster sessions in canoes and kayaks on the lake at Lee Valley White Water Centre, opened in 2011 and home of London 2012 Olympic Canoe Slalom.
