The boat will depart from Caversham Pier at 6pm for a 3 hour cruise up river on the 15th July. Traditionally the more mellow time of the day on the Thames, Jim will match his set to the mood and river. The boat has a full onboard bar with sensible pub prices and a big foredeck on which you can take in the Thames, feel a cooling breeze and listen to a great set. Tickets are limited and are just £15 per person, so buy now to avoid disappointment.
