Duck Race

DUCK RACE – Watch the fun on Stock Beck, with a chance to win £200! 

Date: Sunday 24 September

Time: First heat starts at 2pm

Venue: Rothay Park, Ambleside

It wouldn’t be Sunday of the Festival of the Fells without the Duck Race, now would it!

Last year’s event featured hundreds and hundreds of yellow ducks floating down Stock Beck through the sylvan surroundings of Rothay Park, with brave souls from Ambleside Kirkstone Rotary Club donning their wellies and their waders to fish out the ducks after each heat.

It was all in a good cause, with a three-figure sum raised for Alzheimer’s Research UK – and this year the same charity will benefit.

Tickets will be on sale at The Hub (at Ambleside Post Office), Cunningham’s on Rydal Road and the Regent Hotel, Waterhead, and on the Friday and Saturday of the festival (September 22 and 23) they can be purchased from the Rotary stand at the Market Square pedestrianised area.

Tickets: £1
