The Salford Dragon Boat Festival

CDBF Dragon (175)




It is with great sadness that we have now had to cancel this event after ten years of successful eventing at this venue.  The Watersports Centre (and also for 2022, Urban Vision, who act for Salford City Council), have collectively imposed a shocking rise in charges that equated to a more than 100% increase over the previous event's venue usage price.  

Appeals to the Director of Salford Community Leisure Ltd. (the company who manage the Watersports Centre) fell on deaf ears, leaving us with the very sad decision of having to retire this event permanently.



On a more positive note ... we are able to announce the launch of our latest event, the Manchester Charity Dragon Boat Challenge, to be held at Trafford Water Park in Sale on Sunday 22nd May 2022.
