Record numbers at Crick 2019
More than 27,000 people visited the 20th Crick Boat Show, up more than 1,000 on 2018's record figures.
The event, which was organised by Waterways World in partnership with the Canal & River Trust and Crick Marina, saw more than 250 exhibitors gather by the Grand Union Canal Leicester line for three days of trading and entertainment, with an extra Trade & Preview Day, in association with LeeSan, held on the first day.
“Boat builders reported healthy level of interest with many orders secured and our new Preview Day worked well with most boat viewings fully booked,” said Peter Johns, publisher of Waterways World and show director. “Many exhibitors appreciated the chance to spend more time talking to fellow exhibitors and we already have some new ideas on how to build on the Trade and Preview Day for 2020.
“Total attendance of just over 1,500 trade and public visitors exceeded our expectations.”
The event saw 40 new boats from across the UK ranging from the 40ft Aintree Beetle to Finesse Boats’ 70ft by 13ft Brigantine.
Matthew Symonds, National Boating Manager for the Canal & River Trust, added: “Every year Crick Boat Show, now the UK’s biggest inland waterways festival, celebrates our fantastic network of canals and rivers. It’s the perfect event to find everything you need to know about inland boating, with something for boaters old and new.
“Research shows spending time by water makes us all healthier and happier.”
The show will take place from May 22 to 25 2020.
