Take Me to the River

A historic 82 year-old narrowboat transformed into ‘no ordinary’ theatrical venue.

Welcome to the Widgeon!

Moored on the banks of waterways at various locations throughout the UK, it’s like the circus coming to town.

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.

If you have any particular needs or just want to enquire further, send us a message and we'll get right on it.

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