Not long to go now until this year’s Crick Boat Show, and we will be there!
Now established as one of the ‘must visit’ events over the Whitsun bank holiday weekend, The Crick Boat Show is Britain’s biggest inland waterways festival and takes place annually over the late May Spring Bank Holiday weekend at Crick Marina in Northamptonshire, this year from Saturday 25th to Monday 27th May 2019, now with an added Trade and Preview Day on Friday 24th May
Once again we will be operating the trip boats up the Leicester Arm of the Grand Union Canal throughout the duration of the weekend, for Show visitors to experience a short taste of life on the water.
Trip boats run every 10 minutes from 10.10am each day of the show and each trip lasts 30 minutes. These trips are free but we do encourage small donations please.
Our trips are always a popular attraction and once again due to popular demand we will again be running an additional boat – to now make four – across all three days of the Show.
As always, we advise that you book your free trip at the Trip Boats Marquee at Stand Q50 by the Quayside soon after you arrive at the Show, where you can also find out more information about us, what we do and can offer to community groups and organisations, schools and colleges. And once again our facepainting team will be on hand to deliver their artistic skills for young and old to enjoy.
As in previous years we will also again have Guinevere – one of our [two] community boats – in attendance at the Show. There will again be opportunity for showgoers to come below deck at the quayside and see inside, and find out more about us with our team on hand to answer any questions and take booking enquiries.
The Crick Boat Show is a fabulous day out with so much to see and do, plus a great variety of entertainment on offer throughout the weekend. This includes full weekend of music entertainment with a wide selection of music performed live in the Wheatsheaf Marquee from noon ’til night and this year.
