The Widgeon Theatre Boat is a A historic 86 year old narrowboat transformed into a ‘no ordinary’ theatrical venue and online grass roots radio station called Widgeon Airwaves.

Take me to the river!

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

It’s truly a great hoot!


Enjoy fantastic theatre, music, puppet shows, workshops, comedy, art, stuff for kids and then some! There’s a full bar and lots of snacks available before, during and after the events.
