Manchester Confidential Testimonial
Organising a party or corporate event this spring? Make sure you plan one that everyone will want to be at.Dry Barge hires out its boat The Bohemia to groups of up to 60 people (smaller groups are welcome). It's a way to make your party memorable and different without having to try too hard.
You and your friends get to see Manchester in a totally new way as you cruise the city's waterways with a drink in your hand. There's a real excitement about climbing on board the boat, and a great atmosphere inside. It'll be just your group and you can have food and music if you like – there's a fully stocked bar, an entertainment system and high quality catering can be arranged on request.
At Confidential, we've had one of these parties ourselves – we took the Heroes for a cruise and had a smashing time out on the water. This was partly because someone miscalculated on the booze front and ordered enough in to keep us merry for months. But mainly it was just the thrill of the voyage. In a landlocked city like this, a trip on a boat is quite an exciting event.
The Bohemia sets sail from the city and slowly glides its way down the Bridgewater Canal to Old Trafford and beyond.
It's popular for corporate events as well as birthday parties, and hen dos. In the past it's been used for product launches, music industry gatherings, entertaining clients, and office away-days. The team on board are accustomed to hosting big name companies so you can be assured of a professional, friendly service.
