Severn Hospice's hugely popular Dragon Boat Festival returns this summer!

Dragon Boat Festival will return to Shrewsbury School Boat Club on 20th & 21st July 2024 

Roar with us again – the dragons are back on the Severn!
Get on board now for our spectacular Dragon Boat Festival – 20 & 21 July 2024.

Race head to dragon’s head along the River Severn at Shrewsbury, from the shadow of Kingsland Bridge to the Pengwern Boat Club.

Book now to register your squad (ideally between 16-20 people). Full instruction given, no training necessary. We provide the boat – a 40ft dragon boat – you provide the power.

It costs £350 to register (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 choose your captain and corral your crew and be part of the largest charity event on the River Severn!

Each team gets a HQ tent for the day and every crew member receives a bespoke medal to remember their oarsome day – there’s even a trophy for the best fancy dress.

FOR COMPANIES; If you require an invoice, please email PRIOR to booking online. Thank you.
