THOUSANDS flocked to Crick Marina over the bank holiday weekend for the 15th Crick Boat Show.

Although visitor numbers have yet to be confirmed mixed weather did not appear to deter the crowds from attending the country’s biggest inland boat show.

The annual event, which showcases the inland waterways industry with over 250 exhibitors from across the canal world, featured free boat trips, live music, a real ale marquee, free children’s entertainment, live music and food and drink stalls.
