Regent's Canal Festival

Critics' choice
© Ben Rowe
The Regent's Canal celebrates its two hundredth birthday with a weekend of arts events from Limehouse Basin to Little Venice. These include 'Tales from the Tunnel', a storytelling boat trip inside the Islington Tunnel (12-13 New Wharf Rd, N1 9RT and 38 Graham St, N1 8JX; Fri-Sun; £7), 'Venetian Bite' a chance to travel by a genuine Venetian gondola (Little Venice Garden and Rembrandt Garden, W2 1XB: Fri-Sun; £13, family of two adults, two children £50), open-air cinema, performances, exhibitions and even an origami armada, which should sit nicely alongside the Rubbish Art life-size paper boat.

I went to this Festival on Saturday evening to help out a friend who was presenting a dance piece in front of the Art Pavilion at Mile End Park . I was really dissatisfied by the organisation of the event and even more by the unacceptable behavior of the organizers and the PI personel. The last band that was playing was invited to play for 45 min but was only allowed to play for 10 min and the members of the group were told off by the PI because they expressed their disappointment. As for the organizers, they were not even there! Very disrespectful towards artists that offer their work for free!
