Peter Johns, Publisher of Waterways World and Show Director, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming people to our 2022 Crick Boat Show, back to full strength after the difficult last two years for live events – with some brand new features to be announced shortly! Crick Boat Show is firmly established as the top destination for waterways enthusiasts looking to buy a new boat, upgrade or improve their existing boat, for newcomers wanting to get afloat for the first time and for those seeking a day out by the water.

“Now in its 23rd year, the Show hosts the largest display of new inland boats, both narrowboats and wide beams, and for three days it becomes Britain’s largest chandlery when almost 300 exhibitors bring together the complete range of equipment and materials for inland boating.

“Our extra ‘Trade & Preview Day’ on Thursday 2 June offers a maximum of 1,000 pre-booked visitors the opportunity to talk in-depth with companies offering equipment and services for inland boating and to see the boats before everyone else.”

For Friday 3, Saturday 4 and Sunday June 5, adult tickets are £18 on the gate, £15.30 in advance. Entry for children aged 16 and under is free on Friday 3, Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 June. Three-day adult tickets are £40 on the gate, £34 in advance.

Tickets for the Trade & Preview Day on Thursday, June 2, are only available in advance (from February 2022) and are £25 each.

All advance tickets will be sent out in May. Advance tickets can be ordered online or by phone until 12 noon.
