Manvers Lake Charity Shield Dragon Boat Race

Manvers Charity Shield Dragon Boat Race


Come along and join us for the first of our annual Dragon Boat Event.

We at Manvers Lake have held both National Dragon Boat Events and Charity Dragon Boat Events for the last few years. We know how to put on a spectacular event, with qualified helms to steer the boat, safety cover and a team of experts to help you bank side.

Gather your team of paddlers (and drummer) and join us on Saturday 2nd September 2023 for a fun-filled family day out! Each team will take part in timed heats, with a minimum of 3 races each.

​The event is free to all spectators. We will be having stalls and funfair rides, face painting and other attractions to keep everyone entertained throughout the day. There will also be a licensed bar on site!

​The day will end with a presentation to the top three teams. Each team who come 1st, 2nd & 3rd will receive medals and trophies to keep. The winners will also receive their name engraved on the coveted Manvers Lake Charity Shield, which will be displayed on site for all to see. The winning team will also receive £400 donation to their chosen charity or non-profit organisation.
