Fri 10th - Mon 13th Apr 2020 Easter Boat Gathering

For the last 42 years, the colourful spectacle of the Easter Boat Gathering has marked the unofficial start to the season.

The 43rd event, full of boats, music and more will continue this grand tradition.

Tens of boats will moor up across the museum’s seven-acre site. While boaters catch up on news museum visitors can stroll along the waterside, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a rare chance to get up close to beautiful historic vessels, lovingly restored by dedicated owners.
