Sunday 17th July 2022
The 2022 Charity Regatta and Fun Day which will be open to the public as well as brethren, families and friends.
Gates will open on Sunday from 12 noon and this will include street food, beers, stalls and family fun, live bands, classic vehicles show with cars, motorcycles and others on Pitchcroft, accessed through the Pitchcroft car park off Severn Terrace. The first race will begin at 13:00.
The Regatta element of the day will centre on the Worcester Rowing Club adjoining Pitchcroft and will feature an opening Oxford v Cambridge race in the guise of the Assistant Grand Master, Sir David Wootton, and a crew of Cambridge alumni v our very own Provincial Grand Master (Head of Freemasonry in Worcestershire) with an Oxford alumni crew. From the current entries it appears that there will be at least two other Provincial Grand Masters leading crews in the competition.
Tickets are £5 (under 12s free) in advance from Eventbrite or £7.50 on the gate. Parking on Pitchcroft is included free with the ticket. The event can be found on Eventbrite under 'Regatta Fun Day 2022’ or the link below:
The other important element of the afternoon is the Duck Race when we hope to release up to 3000 yellow plastic ducks from captivity to make a break for freedom along the Severn. Tickets to secure your duck are circulating via the Worshipful Master and Secretary in each lodge across the Province and are £3 each - a small sum to sponsor a duck’s bid for freedom!
