Special Events


Throughout the year we hold and are involved in many different events. Some of these provide opportunities for us to take our boats a little further afield to extend and promote the charitable work of Safe Anchor Trust. We also hold regular Open Weekends for members of the public at our base at Shepley Bridge Marina.

Final Open Weekend at Shepley Bridge Marina

29th and 30th September
10am – 4pm each day

A last chance this year for you to enjoy a boat trip with us before we all go into hibernation until next year!

Santa Special for Schools

3rd – 7th December

A chance for young students of special needs and less privileged schools to meet Santa and receive a present from him . A very special occasion for all of them.

Santa Special for Public

8th & 9th December
10am – 2.30pm each day

Trips start from the towpath behind LIDL in Mirfield with boats leaving every 20 minutes.

Passengers are transported by boat to Santa’s Grotto, around 15 minutes, where all children get to meet Santa and receive a present from him. The model railway will be running, the cafe is open and other activities will be taking place. When you are ready, get back on a boat to be transferred back to Mirfield. There is a small charge for these trips.
