Bands at Beese's


We are really excited to offer a whole summer schedule of fantastic Friday evening trips to live bands at Beese's.

Boat & Band and a lovely supper all included in your ticket!

What better way to kick start your weekend than an evening boat-trip to this legendary riverside venue. Buy a drink on board, relax and enjoy whilst our lovely boat takes you through the tranquil, leafy, waterways to Beeses.

Here you can hop off the boat and soak up the beautiful surroundings whilst enjoying a delicious supper and of course the ineffable entertainment of a great live band.

Remember to bring some cash for our on-board bar!!
