Show Director's statement Monday 3 August 2020
We have delayed making a decision on potential revised dates for Crick Show 2020 for as long as possible in the hope that we would be able to plan with more certainty. However, it is increasingly apparent that we could pick dates and be over-run by changing circumstances all too quickly – as illustrated recently by the changing news on Spanish holidays and quarantine.
We are reluctantly announcing, therefore, that there will be no live Crick Boat Show in 2020.
However, we are very actively exploring some ideas for a “Virtual” Show for 2020. We have seen some of these in operation and think that there will be some really good opportunities for the boating world – it would be terrific if our sector could be seen to be leading the way in this respect.
For anyone who has bought tickets and booked camping or mooring for 2020 in advance we will be in touch directly with the options available. The options are likely to include special access to any Virtual Show in 2020 or privileged access to the 2021 Show. For those of you who would prefer a refund, this will also be available. Thank you for your patience and support.
Crick Boat Show 2020 to be rescheduled
New dates later in year to be announced
If you have purchased tickets, booked camping, mooring or boathandling taster session for Crick Boat Show 2020, all will be valid for the rescheduled Show.
Advance ticket sales are suspended until new dates are announced.
Show Director's statement Monday 16 March 2020
"With Crick Boat Show scheduled to take place over the Late May Bank Holiday weekend, we have been closely monitoring the evolving public health advice regarding Covid-19 and the rapidly changing government plans.
The health of visitors, exhibitors, volunteers, contractors, suppliers and our staff is paramount and it has become clear that, with the currently projected duration of the Covid-19 outbreak, now is the right time for us to announce a postponement of the 2020 Show to later in the year.
We are aware that the Show is critical to many waterway-related businesses and the highlight of the waterways calendar for many visitors, and so we will be working hard to find a suitable alternative date. With around 40 key suppliers to work with on their availability we would ask for your support and patience while we evaluate all of the possibilities. We will make a further announcement on a re-scheduling as soon as possible.”
