Historic boats star in Traditional Boat Festival 2018 at Henley on Thames

9adb8c5c-0ee4-49cb-968b-2712ce77c5aa
A survivor from the Great War and a colourful but unhurried Royal spectacle will line up with a World beater at Henley-on-Thames' Traditional Boat Festival in July.
 
The event features the largest display of traditional boats in Europe, the fleet of Dunkirk "Little Ships",  Her Majesty's Rowbarge "Gloriana", amphibious and military vehicles, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and a World War I air display.
 
Other special attractions will include a Victorian passenger steamer - Alaska, the oldest still in regular service - and there will be the annual illuminated parade when traditional boats illuminated with thousands of lights sail into Henley on the Saturday night.
 
From Friday midday until Sunday evening the popular Trad Boat Festival will take place at Fawley Meadows, opposite the Regatta Enclosures.
