The 2012 Crick Boat Show will be a four-day show on 2nd-5th June 2012 and this year it includes some special celebrations for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. If you’re looking for a narrowboat for sale, a widebeam or barge for sale in the UK then it’s a great place to find out about all things boaty.

For families there will be children’s activities, learning experiences, entertainers and traditional rides and games. There will be live bands and a diversity of food and drink options. There will also be gourmet food and arts and crafts in the new Water Vole Craft and Food Marquee. The heritage area will showcase the history of the waterways and the huge Kingfisher Boating Marquee will be packed with waterways related products, services, associations and businesses. Not forgetting of course the essential parts of any canal festival; there will be a real ale bar and dozens of colourful boats.

Neil Chapman from Boatshed, Jan Knox from Canal Experience Training, myself and more of the Boatshed team will be there promoting Boatshed Inland as well as Boatshed Franchises and Agencies to other Waterways businesses and interested individuals.

So if you want to buy a boat, sell your boat, become a broker, learn more about boat handling training or are simply curious about boats come and say hello at Crick this year. We’re happy to chat and answer your questions.
