Lindsay is off to Alvecote.

Lindsay is leaving Etruria on Monday 24 August bound for the Alvecote Historic Boat Gathering over the bank holiday weekend. This is the first time that Lindsay has been to this popular event at Alvecote Marina, which attracts over forty ex working boats. Much time has been spent over the last few weeks getting everything into tip top condition for the event. This year the event looks forward to welcoming back 'Hasty' the fabulous steam tunnel tug by Brinklow and hopefully some small steam launches will also be in attendance. As usual we have some floating traders along with a fabulous flotilla of colour and splendour which is made up mostly from the Historic gang.   There will be live music from Fri eve onwards with various acts throughout the weekend and on the Monday afternoon as things wind down we intend to hand the PA system and stage over to the boaters for another fantastic  jam/music session to bring the weekend to a close, so if you can play an instrument then bring it!   All weekend the pub will be running a fine selection of 10 local ales along with all the usual refreshments and food from the menu available downstairs. There will also be Boater's Breakfast (ticket only) and Beer garden BBQ daily.   Throughout the weekend we have the skilful turning round competition (Prop Master) and the Les Lapworth award for the best turned out historic boat in attendance. Why not come along and see Lindsay along with all the other boats. The event is at Alvecote Marina, Robey's Ln, Tamworth, Staffordshire B78 1AS
