Countryfile Live – Blenheim Palace 3-6 August 2017

The Boat Building Academy were delighted to exhibit at the 2017 Countryfile Live Show at Blenheim Palace.

We took the 18′ motor boat based on the Donzi ‘Sweet 16‘ and the kayak that launched on June 1st 2017, ‘Merry’ the Christmas Wherry launched in November, traditional clinker Humble Bee ‘Rubee’ and the stand-up paddle board Jerôme Borghgraef’s built in his spare time.

Packed with wholesome countryside fun, BBC Countryfile Live is four days of live arena shows, hands on activities, animal displays, debates, food, drink and shopping.  It was brilliant.  In a stunning location, meeting interesting people (and dogs), eating wonderful food… it didn’t feel like work.  Thanks to everyone, organisers, visitors and exhibitors who made it such a memorable four days.

Countryfile Live 2017 stand showing off the boats and furniture built by students at the Boat Building Academy.
