The Crick Boat Show is a very popular event in the boater’s calendar and we’re all glad to be back after having to miss out last summer because of the Covid restrictions. The show organisers have made a few changes this year to provide a safe environment for all exhibitors and visitors. Please read the Crick Boat Show precautions here.

Celebrating all things boating

As usual there will be plenty of interesting boats on show. The marina will play host to some beautiful historic narrowboats as well as some brand-new boats and many in between. Boat builders and fitters, along with brokers will be displaying narrowboats, widebeams and livaboard boats.

There will also be everything you need to keep your narrowboat ship-shape and to keep you and your family safe and comfortable on the water. The show village has a wealth of shopping opportunities outside in the open air. There’s also a food and craft marquee where you’ll find gourmet foods to try and product demonstrations to watch.

Once again, The Canal & River Trust will be welcoming visitors to their dedicated marquee. You’ll find plenty of experts providing advice and information relating to all aspects of boating on our rivers and canals. There will be anything from boat licensing to the wildlife you might see when you’re cruising the waterways in your narrowboat.

Entertainment at the Boat Show

No boat show is complete without a beer tent! Crick’s local pub, The Wheatsheaf, will be running the beer tent again this year and musical entertainment will be provided by well-known Crick entertainer, Derek Meyer. The blues/acoustic guitarist will be playing on all three evenings at the show.

The Crick Boat Show is open from 10am – 6pm on Friday 20th & Saturday 21st August and from 10am – 5pm on Sunday 22nd August. If you order your tickets in advance, you can save 20% or more on the gate prices. Order Crick Boat Show tickets here before midnight on Sunday 15th August to take advance of the discounts.
