Organised by Waterways World in partnership with the Canal & River Trust and Crick Marina, in 2017 the event attracted a record 27,167 visitors.
As well as being the canal world’s biggest marketplace, showcasing the inland waterways industry with 300 exhibitors, the Show offers a fantastic day out for all the family with dozens of boats to look round, free boat trips, 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, says: “We are looking forward to welcoming people to our 2018 Crick Boat Show, the UK’s largest inland waterways festival.
“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.
“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. Unframed prints of the new artwork will available in A2 and A3 sizes from the Waterways World shop, making ideal gifts for Crick Boat Show enthusiasts.”
