The show, held next to the Grand Union Canal, will see 200 exhibitors showcasing thousands of inland waterways products and services, from boats, engines and chandlery to holidays, brokerage and insurance. And the event offers an exciting programme of family entertainment, including boat trips, live music, children's activities, arts and crafts stands, a large variety of food and drink stalls, competitions and seminars on boat owning, boat buying and living afloat.
Peter Johns, Publisher of Waterways World and Show Director, says: “Come along to the Crick Boat Show over the Whitsun bank holiday weekend at the end of May to enjoy a celebration of our canals. The Kingfisher Boating Marquee will be filled with exciting new waterway products and services and plenty of special show offers, while the marina will be packed with new boats to view.
All the family
“And there's a fantastic programme of entertainment for all the family, including extra trip boats so that more visitors can get afloat. So come along to find out more about Britain's canals and rivers and enjoy a great day out in the Northamptonshire countryside.”
