Crick Boat Show

The UK’s biggest inland waterways festival



The Crick Boat Show is the largest inland waterways festival in the United Kingdom. It takes place at Crick Marina on the Grand Union Canal near Daventry in Northamptonshire every year over the late May Bank Holiday weekend.

The Show has the greatest display of new inland boats, both narrowboats and wide beams, and it transforms into Britain’s largest chandlery for three days when over 260 exhibitors bring together the whole spectrum of inland boating equipment and supplies.

The Crick Boat Show has become a popular destination for waterways enthusiasts wishing to modify or upgrade their boat, newcomers eager to get afloat for the first time, and those looking for a relaxing day on the water.

The show is organised by Waterways World magazine in collaboration with the Canal & River Trust and Crick Marina.
