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.

“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.”
