SAVE THE DATE: Our Dragon Boat Festival will return on 22-23rd July 2023!


Join us for our annual Dragon Boat Festival!

It takes place in the heart of Shrewsbury at Pengwern Boat Club on the River Severn.

We now only have limited spaces available over the two days. Each team is made up of between 11 and 20 team members, one of which will be the drummer for the boat, and there is space for three reserves.

Teams race each other along the River Severn in 40ft Dragon boats to the beat of the drum. We provide the provide the power.

It costs £350 to register your team into the event (or £300 if you are quick off the mark and get the early bird deal) and we ask that each team raises a minimum of £1,000 in sponsorship.

So grab your Captain, crew and drummer, get on board and sign up for the biggest charity event on the River Severn! Each team that enters gets a team tent and each crew member receives a bespoke Dragon Boat medal and there is even a trophy for the best fancy dress!
