Did some­one say more boat shows?

Canal Boat - - News -

YOU MAY BE too late for Crick Boat Show but there are other shows in the north, the south-west, the south-east and the Mid­lands with plenty of in­ter­est to the in­land boater.

First is Lon­don-on-Wa­ter, tak­ing place in St Kather­ine’s Dock just next to Tower Bridge on 8-11 June.

Next comes the North­ern Boat Show, which links up with the well-es­tab­lished Mersey River Fes­ti­val in Liver­pool on 23-25 June. Canal boat-builders Ain­tree Boats, Colling­wood Boat Builders and Viking Canal Boats will be there, with wide and nar­row­beam craft. New for this year on 21-23 July is the Western Boat Show, or­gan­ised in con­junc­tion with the Bris­tol Har­bour Fes­ti­val.

Fi­nally, for those in­ter­ested in shared own­er­ship, the an­nual Na­tional Boat Share Show at Braun­ston has al­ready taken place (and fea­tured 15 shared boats in­clud­ing a wide­beam rep­re­sent­ing four shared own­er­ship com­pa­nies and an in­de­pen­dent syndicate, with 28 shares sold at the event), but there’s still the Au­tumn Boat Share Show on 9-10 Septem­ber at Over­wa­ter Ma­rina on the Shrop­shire Union.
