Bluebell Wood is returning to Manvers Lake for another exhilarating Dragon Boat Race! 

Gather your team of intrepid rowers (and drummer) and join us on Saturday 8th July 2023 out on the choppy waters.

Each team will take part in timed heats, with the three fastest teams going head-to-head in a dramatic final to place 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

The event is free to spectators and they'll be lots of fun things for teams to enjoy in between races, as well as activities for the whole family. This includes children’s games, amusements, face painting and other attractions and stalls. We will also be running a barbecue, food stalls and a bar.
