Singer and songwriter Hazel O’Connor will headline the entertainment programme this year’s Crick Boat Show & Waterways Festival, 23-25 May 2015.

Crick Boat Show offers a fantastic day out for all the family with dozens of boats to look round, free boat trips, free fun fair, live music, a real ale marquee, children’s activities, and a large variety of food and drink stalls.

Hazel will perform her ‘An Evening with Hazel O’Connor’ tour set at Crick on Sunday 24 May. The show will include songs from the iconic film ‘Breaking Glass’, including ‘Eighth Day’, ‘Will You’, ‘Big Brother’ and ‘If Only’, as well as old and new songs from Hazel’s portfolio and a special meet and greet after the show.
