Set sail for King Pocky’s Derwent Water Regatta

Keswick, Cumbria

Join the adventure at King Pocky’s Derwent Water Regatta on 9 - 10 July, as upcoming family film Swallows and Amazons takes over this National Trust Lake District event.

Take part in a range of activities inspired by the film in the location where the story is set, from sailing taster sessions and the Swallows and Amazons Pirate Fancy Dress Competition to boat trips and a musical bonfire on the beach.  

Adventurers can cheer on their favourite team as they watch the Swallows and Amazons Boat Race – a race using the real boats ‘Swallow’ and ‘Amazon’ that featured in the film.

There is also a traditional fairground, live music and drama, as well as the chance to try out kayaking and paddle boarding. Plus plenty of stalls selling food and drink - everything you could need for a weekend of family fun.
