We are welcoming the return of colourful boats to the museum this Easter for the Easter Boat Gathering. The festival brings to an end our 40th anniversary celebrations. Heritage and great stories will come alive throughout the weekend with boat trips, musical performances and workshops, behind the scenes tours, crafts and activities for everyone.

This event marks the start of the summer cruising season where many boats will set off to other parts of the canal network following the festival.
The Easter Boat Gathering is a popular event with both canal enthusiasts and visitors and this will be an extra special year at the museum as we conclude our 40th anniversary museum.
