Gearing up for Crick Boat Show
By the time this appears in print, Crick Boat Show will be only a few weeks away – and as we went to press, boatbuilders and other exhibitors were busy booking in for the country’s only annual specialist inland boat show.
Advance tickets have gone on sale for the event which takes place over the late spring bank holiday weekend on 26 to 28 May. These give a saving of 15 percent compared to the on-the-gate price, and are available up to 20 May from crickboatshow.com. Around 20 builders of narrow and broad craft have already booked space, and many more are expected to confirm their attendance shortly.
As usual the show’s organisers will be running seminars on site about boat buying, selling and maintenance, while the headline act for the weekend’s entertainments has been announced: tribute band Abba Revival.
In the June issue of Canal Boat we will be publishing a full preview including all the boats expected to be on show.
