Very sadly, due to the continuing high number of daily new cases here in the UK and the safety concerns for all the people who have yet to contract the illness, the 2020 Salford Dragon Boat Festival is now cancelled.
Once our safety advisors have confirmed it is safe enough for dragon boat challenges to re-start, we will look to organising the next event next year soonest.
Meanwhile, many thanks to all the wonderful pepole who have helped to make this amazing event so special all these years. Thanks also for the amazing support everyone has shown their team charities.
Please don't forget the charities during this very challenging time as almost all are utterly dependent on the very generous donations received from this and other events - and with most events no longer being possible this year, it leaves them struggling to maintain their service or in some cases, survive.
