Knox-Johnston to organise

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston is to head up a steering group tasked with organising a Liverpool Boat Show in 2011.

Sir Robin has said that he is “delighted to accept the position of chairman of the Steering Group” and will be working with both the city and the Northwest Development Agency to launch the first show, 29th April – 8th May 2011.

With a vast complex of docks, surrounded by Britain’s largest single collection of Grade 1 listed buildings, and a highly impressive waterfront Liverpool is an ideal venue for a major regional boat show. With 25m people living within an hour of the city it’s hoped the show will be a success.
