The Mug Tug

Come along and PAINT A POT

On our brand new narrowboat

The Mug Tug at Barton under Needwood Marina

Permanently moored at Barton Marina, The Mug Tug invites people of all ages and all abilities on board to experience the stylish, colourful, floating sensation! No need to 'borrow' a child, adults of all ages are encouraged to enjoy the fun too.


Not only a pastime for one person; sharing the moment and ideas about their creations with a friend or family member brings more fun and creates shared memories. It's a wonderful activity for several generations of family members to participate in together, from grandparents through to grandchildren.

It's All About Having Fun!
