Meet Captain 'MJ'

About the Widgeon


There's an incredible festival, circus, theatrical intimate feel with a full bar and snacks. Full of great entertainment, in great locations with great people.

If you're local or in the area you may not be accustomed to having fantastic theatre, music, puppet shows, workshops, comedy and art brought to the waterways? So why not take yourself, family, friends and the kids down to the river to rock the boat.

The Widgeon hosts up to 35 guests inside with a modest stage. The outdoor stage occupies the whole front of the boat allowing performers to entertain a larger audience on the bank side.

It's like the circus has come to town!

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.

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