FAQs

 

Can we bring our dog(s) to the Show?

Please feel free to bring your canine friends along to the Crick Boat Show. 

Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times. Please do not leave dogs unattended in parked cars. Please take care to clean up after your dog.

I'm registered disabled - what facilities will there be for me at the Show?

Disabled moorers and campers will be assigned with appropriate positions closest to the facilities and Show entrances, provided that their camping and mooring spaces are booked in advance and it is made clear at the time of booking that the booking is for a disabled pitch.

A dedicated disabled car park allows easy and quick access to the Show entrance.

Disabled toilets are available in several locations across the Show site. Visitors who are registered as disabled pay the concessionary ticket rate.

Mobility scooters and wheelchairs are available to hire, subject to availability. If you have booked a mobility scooter or wheelchair, just print off your confirmation and visit the Advance Ticket Collection window of the ticket office at the main entrance of the Show to collect on arrival.

I have a specific query about boating that I'd like to speak with an expert about - will there be someone for me to speak to at the Show?

A number of seminars led by experts cover a wide range of subject areas over the course of the Show.  We advise that anyone wishing to talk to an expert attends the appropriate seminars and gets involved in our question and answer sessions.

What are the car parking facilities and charges?

There is plenty of car parking at the Show and there is no charge for this.

I'm travelling by train/bus to the show - how do I find out the local bus and train timetables?

Contact Rugby Visitor Centre for public transport timetables on 01788 533217. Please note that no service buses run to Crick on Sunday or Bank Holiday Monday.

Do you have concessionary ticket rates?  Who do they apply to?

Concessions apply to over 65s, registered disabled, war veterans and full–time students. You will need to bring proof of eligibility for concession with you to the Show. 

I've ordered tickets but they've yet to arrive - when should I expect them?

Your wristbands will be delivered in early May. If you have not received your wristbands by the Wednesday before the Show opens, please contact our Burton-on-Trent office on 01283 742970. Please note that this office is closed over the show weekend. If you are unable to contact our Burton-on-Trent office and you have orderd advance tickets, please do still come to the Show; we are able to check and verify all advance ticket purchases at the Show Ticket Office.
