The 2018 Crick Boat Show, Britain’s biggest inland waterways event, will be held from May 26-28 at Crick Marina, Northants.

Organised by Waterways World, in partnership with the Canal & River Trust and Crick Marina, the show will feature 300 exhibitors, 50 exhibiting boats, including historic working boats, free boat trips, live music, children’s activities, a real ale marquee, food and drink stalls.

“Whether people are boating enthusiasts wanting to buy boating products and services, or just looking for a great family day out by the water, there’s lots to see and do at Crick Boat Show,” said Peter Johns, publisher of Waterways World and show director.

“Inspired by Frank Henry Mason’s vintage railway posters and designed by artist Nicky Thompson, this year we are introducing some colourful new branding for Crick, which aims to capture the vibrancy of the show.”

The show was first held in 1999. In 2017, the event attracted a record 27,167 visitors and more than 26,000 are expected to attend in 2018.
