Many of our best loved theatres are close to the canals and a Canal Boat Holiday is a perfect excuse to treat yourself to a performance.

The Royal Shakespeare Theatre is a large national theatre owned by the Royal Shakespeare Company and is probably the most famous classical theatre company in the world.

Based in Stratford upon Avon it is easily reached from our base at Alvechurch.

During July The Swan Theatre in Worcester is hosting one of the Bards most popular production, Romeo and Juliet.

The Bristol Hippodrome can be visited from our resort at Hilperton and are currently showing one of the Westends favourite musicals Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The Mikron Theatre Group even comes to you on your Discount Boat Hire Holiday as they tour on their Narrowboat Tyseley taking the exciting world of the theatre to venues all along the canal system.

Canal Boat Holiday guests cruising the Grand Ring are in for a treat this October when the stage of the London Palladium in the West End will be turned into an ice rink for the first time in 36 years.

The theatre which hosted the World Figure Skating Championships in 1898, will host The Imperial Ice Stars for The Nutcracker on Ice.

Four-time figure skating world champion and dual Olympic gold medallist Evgeny Platov is one member of the cast of 26.

The story by Tchaikovsky is set in St Petersburg and follows Marie whose Nutcracker doll comes to life and leads her on adventures with the Mouse King, the Prince, and the Sugar Plum Fairy.
