St Catherine’s Hospice’s oar-some Dragon Boat Festival

St Catherine’s Hospice annual Dragon Boat Festival is back with a splash! Taking place in Tilgate Park on Sunday 9 September, this free, family fun day is set to be the biggest yet!
The thrilling event, sponsored by Vines of Gatwick, kicks off at 9.30am with plenty to keep you entertained all day.
Come along and cheer on over 40 teams, made up of local businesses, as they sail across Tilgate Lake and race to become Dragon Boat Champions 2018.
For those on the shorelines, try your luck at traditional fête games, spring into action on giant inflatables, or tuck into tasty food from onsite food vendors. When you’re done, kick back with a refreshing drink from the onsite bar, and listen to live music from local artists.
Tom Abbott, Community and Events Fundraising Manager at St Catherine’s, said: “This year, we’ve got the most Dragon Boats we’ve ever had racing to date. With more teams to cheer on, the whole day’s set to be bigger than ever! So it’s the perfect event to bring all your family and friends together for.
“Currently, St Catherine’s can only care for one in three local people who need us. By supporting this year’s Dragon Boat Festival, you’ll be helping us support more terminally ill people in your community in future. We look forward to welcoming lots of you to Tilgate Park for this wonderful event!”
