The canal world converges at Crick Boat Show & Waterways Festival on May 25 to 27 for its annual celebration of the canals.

And we’ve teamed up with the organisers to give you the chance to win one of ten family three-day passes.

The event is held at Crick Marina near Daventry in Northamptonshire and is expected to attract 25,000 visitors over three days.

As well as showcasing thousands of inland waterways products and services, Crick Boat Show offers an exciting programme of family entertainment, including boat trips, free traditional fairground rides, Punch & Judy shows, live music, children’s activities, arts and crafts stands, and a large variety of food and drink stalls.

Show director Peter Johns said: “Come along to the Crick Boat Show over the bank holiday weekend to enjoy a great day out in the Northamptonshire countryside. We’ve got a fantastic programme of entertainment for all the family, including live music, free boat trips and free children’s entertainment.”

The event is open from 10am until 6pm each day except Monday May 27, when it closes at 5pm. Family tickets (two adults and two children aged 5-16) are £24 if bought in advance or £32 on the gate. Entry is free for under-fives on all three show days and all children (16 or under) go free on Monday May 27.

Crick Boat Show is organised by Waterways World in partnership with the Canal & River Trust and Crick Marina.
