It’s DUCK RACE time again!

11am – 2pm Easter Monday 22nd April in Westbury Garden with the race at 12 noon

It’s time for the famous annual Bradford on Avon Duck Race and this year promises to be bigger and better than ever, thanks to generous sponsorship from Puddle Ducks Bristol & Bath!

We’ve got some fabulous prizes and over a 1000 ducks at the ready, waiting to be launched into the river from the Town Bridge!

Westbury Garden will host entertainment by Ticklish Allsorts and the fabulous FB Pocket Orchestra!

Fear not, as ever, the amazing BoA Rowing Club kayakers will be at the cordoned off finish line waiting to retrieve the lucky winners, before scouring the course for all of the remaining ducks.

You can sponsor your ducks at:

PihaThe Swan, Dible & Roy, Strawberry Blue and the Tourist Information Centre in Westbury Garden.
