NBTA 10th Anniversary Celebration takes shape

The NBTA 10th Anniversary Celebration and General Meeting will be held at Middle Floor, 23-25 Wharf St, Leeds LS2 7EQ on Saturday 27th April 2019 from 11am to 11pm. Free entry, donations welcome.

  • The day will start with the General Meeting and Committee elections from 11am – 1pm.
  • Then from 1pm to 6pm there will be speakers, workshops, films, discussions and action planning.
  • At 6.30pm the bar will be open and there will be live music, sounds and festivities until 11pm.

The NBTA is 10 years old this year. We invite all our members and supporters to the 10th Anniversary celebration. We hope that all our members currently in the North of England, the Midlands and beyond will join in. For members where the cost of travel would prevent you from getting to the event, the NBTA aims to make a contribution towards your travel.

Since its formation by a small group of Bargee Travellers facing eviction in 2009, the NBTA has been active in defending and supporting itinerant boat dwellers throughout the inland waterways and fighting the attempts of the navigation and local authorities to get rid of liveaboards.
