21th Annual Dragon Boat Festival

27 July 2018

We are so excited to be taking part in the 21th annual Dragon Boat Festival at Bewl Water on the 8th September 2018.

The 2017 event raised over £107,000 for 50 different charities. More than 1,000 people competed in an amazing display of paddle power, excitement and fun. Since the event began in 1998, over £2.7 million has been raised for more than 400 local, national and international charities.

Crews of 16 paddlers (plus a drummer) race in Chinese-style Dragon Boats over a 250-metre course. Crews do not need to be super fit or skilled to be successful - all that’s required is teamwork and a good sense of fun!

Funraisers Dragon Boat Festival is a unique event, which allows you to choose the charity for which you want to raise money. Each team that enters the races selects a charity and ALL the money raised through sponsorship goes to that charity. We will be raising money for London’s Air Ambulance.

We look forward to partaking in this splendid event and appreciate your support!
