​​WIDGEON is also for hire for your own personal shows, parties, events, celebrations, locations for filming and supperclubs.

Travelling the UK waterways we give you the opportunity to see entertainment  from your local community or outside talent. 

Widgeon’, Is a Traditional working narrowboat, built in 1937 by Yarwood, a Townclass Northwich orginally named Thaxted.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

 RECENTLY THE WIDGEON THEATREBOAT WAS CENTRESTAGE at
"THE ANGEL CANAL FESTIVAL"  Presenting a fabulous mix of talents from 
Shadow Puppetry / Escapology & comedy / Live Music and much more.

The Next THEATRE SHOW  is the 19TH OCTOBER
Location: BROADWAY MARKET 
"THE BURNING GADULKA" - A play which follows a Bulgarian musician who faces a midlife crisis. Is his lifelong love affair with his instrument, the gadulka, about to be challenged by the arrival of a mysterious girl? Where do pandas come into the dilemma? Miro Kokenov takes us on a comic journey of doubt, sarcasm and the wonders of nature.   

The performance is inspired by Bulgarian culture and reveals to the audience the characteristics of Bulgarian folklore, traditional dances and costumes. 

'Sometimes the Balkans seem to me a terrible place, full of absurdities and severe apathy that disintegrates everything around them. Other times I see their beauty and joy, a strange smile peering stupidly everywhere and making you smile, asking you to go figure them out yourself.' Rayko Baychev




















​In Spring and Summer Widgeon has been able to show off her outdoor stage which spans most of the length of the boat which enables artists to enjoy peforming to a larger audience on the banks of the waterways.

It has been wonderful to see the reactions of surprise from passers by who are able to stop and find themselves suddenly immersed into a natural festive atmosphere of Live Music, comedy, Art and Theatre. Suddenly they find themselves changing plans to stay and have a fantastic time watching micro performances off the cuff, such as Live performances from prolific bands.  Widgeon has been thoroughly blessed to have such wondrful support from artists including:-

"The EGG" , 'The Homosexuals', Bruno Wizard,  'Anarchistwood', Renato's Trio, Esther Bennett, John Crawford, Viviana with Renato's Jazz trio. 

This is just a continuation of her already cameo star
in a prolific film  "The Bargee" circa 1964.. 

So Let us Entertain you aboard Widgeon!!
