2019 Activities

The Consuta Project

The refurbishment work is progressing well at our alternative premises in Beale Park. Please check the The Consuta Project page, this calender shows some of the dates when work is being planned at Beale Park.

We will need active supporters who want to help with the preparation work to get Consuta ready for the summer, you may find some of this work interesting and help is always appreciated. We will also need operational crew once Consuta is ready to steam. There will be some retraining to manage the new boiler and fittings installation.

Most of our usual work parties are notified to Trust supporters by email, so if you wish to be included for these notifications please contact us here skipper@consuta.org.uk and we will keep you informed of the dates.

The talks listed in the events below are all part of the activites programme of the HLF Consuta Project. They will be held in the Liston Hall, Marlow, Bucks SL7 1DD (free entry) or at the River and Rowing museum Henley (these need to be booked with the museum). Full details of each talk are given on our project calendar page The Consuta Project. If you have any queries please just email us here
