Brindley Dragonboat Race Returns

News Categories: aspirefuture

The Brindleyplace Dragonboat Race is back on Saturday 24 June 2017

Saturday 24th June is the 18th Brindleyplace Dragonboat Festival, this fantastic event has raised over £500,000 to date and this year our target is to raise a record breaking £100,000!

We would love as many BPS members get involved as possible and many of our neighbours and colleagues across the city are already signed up!

Sponsored by Deutsche Bank and now in its 18th year, the Dragon Boat Race is one of Birmingham’s longest running and most entertaining events. Come down to the Brindleyplace canalside to watch the ultimate battle of Brummie businesses as they compete to become the best Dragonboat paddlers in the city – all whilst being in fancy dress!

In addition to the action along the canal, there’ll also be plenty of entertainment for all the family. There’s no entry fee, no tickets and the whole event is being held in aid of Cure Leukaemia’s £1m centre appeal – for more information click here.

Who will be the fastest from Gas Street Basin to the Barclaycard Arena? Join us on Saturday 24 June 2017 to find out!
