The event will take place at Crick Marina, West Haddon Road, in the village and runs from Saturday, June 2 to Tuesday, June 5.

People are advised to book their tickets early as significant savings of up to 25 per cent can be made if booked in advance.

Alongside a large number of boats on display, there will be plenty of entertainment at the show. Headline acts are The Bachelors and Isla St Clair, famous for her role as co-host on the BBC’s The Generation Game.

For the children, there will be a steam-powered carousel from 1893, swing boats, helter skelter, tea cup ride, face painting and a Punch and Judy show. For fans of a fright, you can go on the Crick Village and Haunted Canal Ghost Tour.
