Our annual Duck Race is held on the Kennet & Avon Canal, starting at the Lock Stock and Barrel pub. 1,000 yellow plastic ducks battle it out on the route to Victoria Park with prizes for the first three across the line.

We are grateful to Hallett’s Estate Agency for sponsoring the prizes for a second year.

Please contact us if you would like to buy a ticket for this year’s race or would like to help with the organisation or sell tickets.
