Enjoy boat trips and live music at Leicester Riverside Festival

Leicester, Leicestershire

Head over to the river for a fun-filled weekend of waterside entertainment and activities that all ages will enjoy.

Grab a spot by the banks to cheer on the rowers whilst watching competitive Dragon Boat racing with crews raising money for the charity.  Afterwards, take a stroll along the river walk promenade where you can see and treat yourself to quality products from local artists and crafts people, and when hunger strikes, take your pick from the variety of food stalls from around the world.

The festival will also be putting on family boat trips, scuba diving demos, demonstrations from Leicester Fire and Rescue Service Water Rescue Team and live jazz music to keep you entertained, and be sure to have stop for a tea break at the floating tea shop.
