Crick Boat Show 2015
26,387 visitors enjoyed boats on land and water and exhibitors including chandleries, boat builders and brokerage firms at the 2015 Crick Boat Show.
Entertainment included performances from pop icon Hazel O’Connor, ‘Murphy’s Marbles’ with Sean Cannon of the ‘Dubliners’ and Northampton reggae favourites ‘Rhythm n’ Roots’. As well as live music and 250 exhibitors displaying all the latest products and services from the canal boat world, the show offered visitors free boat trips, dozens of boats on the marina to look round, a real ale marquee, free children’s entertainment, and a large variety of food and drink stalls.
"A big thank you to the staff and volunteers who worked so hard to make this year's highly successful show possible. The real spirit of goodwill and co-operation from exhibitors and our suppliers made our job a lot, lot easier. We look forward to seeing everyone again, and to welcoming new visitors, at next year's show”
Peter Johns, Show Director
Next year’s show dates are Saturday 28 to Monday 30 May.
