Dragon Boat Racing
Northwich Rotary Club is challenging businesses, clubs and pubs and friends to put together teams to enter the Northwich Dragon Boat Challenge 2018.

Street Theatre
Typhoon & The Pedal Players will be returning to the festival this year after last years success. They are an interactive walkabout experience for family audiences using a steampunk inspired cargo bicycle turned into a time machine. The Players have created new, bespoke scripts, songs and sketches inspired by Cheshire's rich salt mine heritage and aims to reconnect communities with their landscape and heritage. 

Duck Race
On Sunday 15 July Northwich Rotary Club will also be holding a Duck Race as part of the Festival which aims to raise funds for its nominated charities. 

There will also be a range of exciting events over the two days of the festival. Please check back here for further information in the coming months.
