Maidstone on the River Medway

It’s back!!

Maidstone Boat Gathering (formerly Maidstone River Festival) is returning to the River Medway on Saturday 28th July 2018.

As part of the festivities the traditional Raft Race has also been revived and we are privileged to once again be selected as the chosen charity of the race.

The event is open to all with a maximum crew number of 6 per raft. All rafts must be homemade and propelled by paddles only. The entry cost for each raft is £50 with all proceeds going to Heart of Kent Hospice.

After the race there will be prizes for First Past the Post and Best Dressed.

There are a limited number of rafts allowed on the river therefore we urge you to book your raft as soon as possible!!

Deadline Friday 6th July 23.00
