The RYA is pleased to announce that all members are now able to take advantage of one FREE ticket to the new BoatLife Live Boat Show taking place from 17 - 20 February 2022 at the NEC Birmingham, in the heart of the midlands.

As well as their exclusive free member ticket, members will also be able purchase up to five additional tickets at the special price of just £10 each (children 16 and under go free).

"We are delighted to be working with BoatLife to be able to bring this exclusive offer to our members, many of whom we are sure will be thrilled to take advantage of this great offer and enjoy all the show has in store", commented Ben Falla, RYA Head of Membership.

Richard Dove, Director, BoatLife added: "We look forward to welcoming RYA members through the doors of BoatLife Live 2022, the first ever exclusive Boat Show to be held in the midlands. We hope it will be a great way to kick start the year and a great warm-up to the RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show (26-27 February, Farnborough International)."

With three halls filled with boats from powerboats and RIBS to narrowboats, as well as holidays and equipment companies, the show promises to be a great shop window to all things boating and a great day out for the whole family with so much to see under one roof.

With a replica traditional river-side pub and Mediterranean bar, there will be plenty of places to meet old friends and make new ones while listening to live music and enjoying the energetic atmosphere. Head to the Live Stage to hear talks from boating faces we know and love including Katie McCabe, then visit the Inland Zone and Virtual Reality feature to get your thrill of the day. The show is curated to give the whole family a day out, celebrate the boating lifestyle, and bring people together.

Taking place at the NEC Birmingham it is so easy to get to by car, train or plane. The exhibition centre is accessible from all motorways and a short walk from the train station. With over 16,000 car parking spaces and plenty of hotels and restaurants, it makes for a great day or weekend away.
