Sponsored for a second year by Deutsche Bank, 22 teams will race up the Fazeley Canal in traditional 40 ft long Chinese dragonboats from the Pitcher and Piano to the winning post at the NIA on Saturday 16th June.
Each team is expected to raise at least £1500 with all funds going to Birmingham Children’s Hospital’s cancer unit. Alongside the high action race, the festival offers a fun packed day out for the whole family including arts and activity stalls, a craft market, Chinese Lion Dancers, live music and event hosting courtesy of Free Radio.
As expected, because of the festival’s fantastic reputation as one of the most closely fought battles on the business calendar, all the boats were taken up in record time and will include some of last year’s favourites; the winners, West Midlands Fire Service and the best fancy dress winners, No. 5 Chambers.
Matthew Brunning from No. 5 Chambers said ‘The competition last year was really impressive but teams will have to get even better if they want to topple us for our fancy dress crown – we’ve already had some fantastic ideas for themes. We don’t even tell the crew until a few days before, so I'm not telling you now…!’
Kate Fittall, Destination Marketing Manager, GVA said ‘Last year was a roaring success and probably our best event yet, we have a fantastic team pulling this together from Brindleyplace, Deutsche Bank and of course Birmingham Children's Hospital. There is a great atmosphere on the day with businesses from Brindleyplace and surrounding areas competing but the best thing about it is that every single penny raised will be donated to Birmingham Children's Hospital again.
Please come and cheer the teams on and give money to an amazing cause so we can smash last year’s figure!"
Shahaji Sattar, Business Development Consultant for Birmingham Children’s Hospital said, ‘We are delighted to be part of the festival for the 3rd year running especially in our special 150th birthday year. It is wonderful that such a fantastic family-orientated day can make a really positive impact to children at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. We can’t wait for it all to begin!’
Each team needs 12 rowers and one drummer and will race in three heats. Racing will start at 9.30am and continues to 3pm, followed by a prize giving ceremony.
