North-west's new show

Tickets for the Liverpool Boat Show are now on sale. The new boat show takes place from April 29 to May 8 in the historic waterside surroundings of the Albert Dock on the banks of the River Mersey.

Exhibitors at the inaugural show include comapnies across power, sail, fishing, canal boating and canoeing categories. Show goers will be able to view brands such as J Boats, Grand Soleil, Fairline, Sealine, Sunseeker, Princess, Azimut, Rodman, Beneteau, Bavaria, Legend and Passport.

The event is billed as a spectacular boat show. Naval vessels and historic tall ships will add impact within the docks as well as a comedy, sea shanty and marine literary festival planned.
Two sailing regattas will run during alternate show weekends and the aqua-theatre provides sailing and power demonstrations with zap cats, dinghy match racing and live music on a floating stage.

Broadcasts from the Royal Wedding will be live via a large screen at the aqua-theatre bringing the action at Westminster Abbey straight to Liverpool. The Guinness Bar will also be making an exclusive return with stunning views out over the water based action.

Liverpool Boat Show will be open from 10.30am to 8.30pm every day, apart from the final Sunday (May 8) when it will close at 5.00pm.

People pre-booking show tickets will receive an exclusive Liverpool ONE/Boat Show Discount Card entitling them to fantastic discounts and promotional offers in many of the stores within the Liverpool ONE shopping district during the show.

Tickets, which cost from £12, can be booked by going to or by calling the ticket hotline on 0844 809 4620.
