Event details

This is now fully booked.

The BCN Society would like to run more of these events in 2024 and 2025, but volunteer leaders are needed.

All that's required is knowledge of the BCN, access to a boat for a week, and preferably being good at cajoling people and/or general problem-solving.

The committee will help as required with route planning, pub and venue bookings, arranging lock-wheeling and other general admin.


If you think you could lead an Explorer Cruise please email Michael Smith-Keary <sk63@btinternet.com>, or message @Francis Herne on here.


An opportunity to explore the less-visited parts of the Birmingham Canal Navigations as part of an organised group.

Assistance will be available with lock-wheeling on the flights.


There is space for about 10 boats, first-come-first-served, on the May cruise. Another is planned in June.

An entry fee will be required to cover costs, including CRT's new event charge.

Please register with Brenda Ward <bcns.explorercruise@gmail.com>
