Severn Hospice Dragon Boat Festival


Get your oars at the ready as the Severn Hospice Dragon Boat Festival returns and this year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever!  

For the first time in the history of the event there will be not one but TWO days of racing over the fun-filled weekend in July.

It is a fantastic day out for both participants and spectators as teams of 11 to 20 take to the River Severn in 40ft long Viking Dragon Boats. Teams can take part on either the Saturday or Sunday by registering at severnhospice.org.uk

The festival sets up on Beck's Field between Shrewsbury School and the Pengwern Boat Club. Spectators can enjoy the view for free from Shrewsbury Quarry whilst cheering on their favourite team!
