Now recognised as the major boating event of the year it is organised by Waterways World in association with Canal & River Trust and Crick Marina, and is expected to attract over 26,000 visitors.

There are expected to be nearly 300 exhibitors showcasing the inland waterways industry, offering a day out with dozens of boats to view, free boat trips, free advice seminars on boat ownership, live music, children’s activities, a real ale marquee, and a large variety of food and drink stalls.

Peter Johns, Publisher of Waterways World and Show Director, enthused:


“We are looking forward to welcoming people to our 2022 Crick Boat Show, the UK’s largest inland waterways festival.

“Live music is an important part of the show’s atmosphere, and on the Saturday night this year, Crick Boat Show will host ‘Absolute Bowie’ with an electrifying performance planned for the Friday night, and ‘Amy—A Tribute’ on the Saturday night, recreating the sound of Amy Winehouse, with a full horn section, including baritone sax and flute.”

Across the four show days, Crick Boat Show will host a total of 15 acts, performing a wide selection of music live in the Wheatsheaf Marquee from 1pm each day. Evening entertainment will run from 7.30pm to 11.30pm on Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th June.
