Another gathering of canal enthusiasts at Narrowboat Farm awaits!
This year we’ve added some kid-friendly elements in the morning in case you want to come with wee ones and don’t want them to get bored. We’ve got three exciting skills workshops lined up as well as other fun stuff which will be going on.
We have lots of covered space so don’t worry if the weather is poor, the event will go on and there will be lots of cosy spaces to hang out with your fellow boaters. Following the timetabled elements, the BBQ will be running and we’ll set off the bonfire at dusk. You are welcome to bring a camper or tent if you wish to stay over and enjoy the evening frivolities. There is parking, power, water, compost toilet and a shower available. We currently have space for 5 more boats on the bank and there are more moorings at the bistro so definitely feel free to come by boat!
