Informaton from Alvecote Marina:
Traditionally in recent years a collection of Historic Narrowboats normally descends upon Alvecote in the weeks running up to the Braunston Rally. However this year's early IWA National being in Burton upon Trent, puts Alvecote as a useful midway for those attending both rallies! For those who are unaware we offer a free mooring for Historic Passing Craft and are always keen to accomodate boaters in our pub the 'Samuel Barlow'.
This year due to the lack of historic boat events in July, we are holding a summer fayre in aid of local charities at Alvecote. A good number of Historic boats have already expressed an interest in attending. We hope to extend the invitation to all boaters with prime moorings and boat parade for historic craft! There will be events on site all weekend, live music Fri, Sat and Sun Upstairs in the Barlow, which will be a Reasonably priced Boaters' Bar with plenty of local ales from the keg! Open mic also, so bring your instruments!
No need to book and moorings will be on a first come first served basis, with all historic craft taking the waterspace outside the pub.
No entrance fee.
