The Ironbridge Coracle Regatta,
Bank Holiday, Monday 28th August,
In 2017 the Ironbridge Coracle Trust will present the Coracle Regatta, in conjunction with the Ironbridge Lions, at the Ironbridge Rowing Club, Buildwas Road.
From 1.00pm to 4.00pm there will be a series of races for novice, intermediate and expert coracle racers, including Polo, Fish Kebabs, 360 degrees and the ever popular Have a Go .
The audience sits on the steps of the Rowing Club – sure that at least one person per race will end up in the river.
Entertainment and refreshments on site will include barbecue, ice-cream, tea and coffee, craft stalls from 12.00pm.
To enter a coracle event just turn up on the day and register your name at the entry stand. All welcome — you don’t have to bring a coracle, as there are spare coracles available for most races.
£2.00 car parking fee (proceeds go to local charities)
