The 18th annual Dragonboat race is back and will be taking place on Saturday 24th June 2017 in Brindleyplace from 10:00am – 6:00pm.

Sponsored by Deutsche Bank, this is Birmingham’s longest and most entertaining event. Along with the main activity on the canal, families can enjoy plenty of other entertainment around Brindleyplace.

The purpose of the whole event is to raise money in aid of Cure Leukaemia’s £1m centre appeal.
