Crick Boat Show 2021

We were delighted to be able to put on a Show in the most unusual of circumstances and although visitor attendance was, as expected, a little lower than in previous years it certainly did not feel like that at times. The 2021 Show felt busy and vibrant with a great relaxed atmosphere and the usual queues for boat viewings. Iit was terrific to see exhibitors and visitors engaged in conversation from the very opening of the Show almost to the end. The weather forecast had looked very threatening for the weekend but in the end the worst held off and the rain did little to dampen spirits.

It was great to see so many old friends again and again a big thank you to exhibitors, visitors, contractors, volunteers and the staff team for bringing it all together to make 2021 Crick Boat Show a huge success.

Crick Boat Show 2022

Work starts now for the 2022 Show and our plan is to revert to the usual Bandk Holiday weekend, which will be slightly later in the year for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. So, the provisional dates are 2-5 June 2022 and we look forward to seeing you all there!
