Sat 10 Jun Dragon Boat Festival


Dragon boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and the fastest growing water activity in Britain today – as well as the most fun! Up to 10 people paddle each 30' boat with a drummer at the front beating time and our helm at the tail steering a straight course. No previous experience required, just plenty of team spirit!
Gable Events is proud to have once again joined with Festival charity, Sue Ryder- Thorpe Hall Hospice, to bring you the 19th Peterborough Charity Dragon Boat Festival. The Festival is open to everyone and up to 52 crews are expected to battle it out over the 200m race course, watched by several thousand spectators. Peterborough Rowing Club at Thorpe Meadows, PE3 6LN offers a superb venue for racing and a fabulous day is guaranteed with plenty of bank-side family entertainment including funfair activities, inflatables and children’s rides plus a variety of food stalls and bar.
