2016 Woodbridge Regatta – Not long now!

News Article2016 Woodbridge Regatta – Not long now!

This year’s Woodbridge Regatta & Riverside Fair is kindly sponsored by Woodbridge haart Estate agents.  From noon on Sunday 26th June all sorts of spectacles and activities take place on and off the water from The Tide Mill to the Deben Yacht Club.

The event kicks off with Songs of Praise on the Tea Hut stage and finishes with the Woodbridge & District Lions Club Duck Dive at the Model Yacht Pond at 5:30pm. In between there will be a full programme of races on the river. The 2016 haart raft race organised by 1st Woodbridge Scout Group is a sell out this year and always a spectacle for the crowds.

The Tide Mill is offering free admission and people can take advantage of free boat trips up and down the river throughout the day. There will be face painting and games at the Bandstand.

Live music will fill the air at various intervals along the riverside including The Tea Hut and The Cruising Club.

Woodbridge Regatta is FREE for all to enjoy and there is FREE CAR PARKING at Suffolk Coastal District Council car park at Melton Hill, Woodbridge, IP12 1AU.

Geoff Holdcroft, chairman of the Regatta Committee, said: “The programme for this year is being developed to ensure it has all of the usual action with some added freshness. The success and longevity of Woodbridge Regatta is a testament to various community groups working together. I thank everyone involved for helping us to put on what we hope will be another fabulous event.”
