Take Me to the River

An 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.

Enjoy fantastic theatre, music, puppet shows, workshops, comedy, art, stuff for kids and then some!

It‘s truly, unique and a great hoot. There’s a full bar and lots of snacks available before, during and after the events.

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.
