It's truly
a great hoot!

Enjoy fantastic theatre, music, puppet shows, workshops, comedy, art, stuff for kids and then some! There’s a full bar and lots of snacks available before, during and after the events.

Whether the weather is brisk or balmy, the Widgeon offers great comfort.

All events held on The Widgeon are on the riverbank. This means both the boat itself and the bankside it's moored to can showcase events, allowing all sorts of comfortable configurations.
