About Us

From the 30th March till 2nd April 2018 the Easter Boat Gathering is back. To mark the start of the boating season National Waterways Museum holds a spectacular event over the Easter weekend. 

The festival will build on the success of the 40th anniversary celebrations giving boats the opportunity to moor in the recently opened upper basin.  

The 2018 Easter Boat Gathering promises a richly varied and exciting line up of music, family and boat activity. The lively long weekend will include a fine folk programme combined with inspirational workshops and museum activities for all ages. 

On Friday evening, David Lowe, well known to us as Chairman of the Commercial Boat Operators Association (CBOA) will be speaking on "Modern Freight Carrying by Water".

During the weekend there will be opportunities for visitors to have "Behind the Scenes" explorations of the boat store in Rossfield Road where the vessels raised from the top basin are being stored and worked on. There will also be the usual tours of the Lime Shed and the wider site. 

If you live in Cheshire/Chester and would like to take part in the gathering, please get in touch! The booking form is on the National Waterways Museum website.
