LNBP at Braunston set to put smiles on faces this weekend at Crick Boat Show

Thursday 26th May 2016 | Events, Fundraising, News


LNBP at Braunston is set to put the smile on everyone’s faces in more ways than one at this weekend’s Crick Boat Show and Waterways Festival.


We will once again be attending the three-day show at Crick Marina on the Northamptonshire/Warwickshire border and offering boat cruises for all show goers, plus face painting for young visitors.



Founded in 1981 and formerly known as the London Narrow Boat Project, LNBP at Braunston is a registered charity providing the opportunity for a wide variety of user groups to enjoy inexpensive canal boating holidays in central England. These groups include schools, colleges, youth groups, clubs, uniformed organisations and associations, groups working with the disabled, the partially sighted and those with special needs, and organisations working with the disadvantaged and unemployed.


LNBP at Braunston have been involved with the Crick Boat Show for a number of years and are once again privileged to have been appointed Charity Partner of the Show by the organisers, Waterways World Magazine.

Tricia at work!

Young visitors to this weekend’s Crick Boat Show and Waterways Festival – which runs from Saturday to Monday, can look forward to having their faces painted by the charity’s team of volunteers at the LNBP marquee on the marina, whilst from the quayside the team will be running their ever-popular boat trips, providing 30 minute cruises up the Leicester Line of the Grand Union Canal.
