With Christmas just around the corner, the plans for the Peterborough Charity Dragon Boat Festival 2022 are full steam ahead!

We can now officially announce that the 22nd Peterborough Dragon Boat Festival will be held on Saturday June 11, 2022 at the Peterborough Rowing Lake and ESP is proud to be the media partner.

Once again, we will see up to 48 teams battle it out over the 200m racecourse to fight for victory in this exciting event.

Gable Events, the festival's previous organisers, have now closed but two of their senior event managers are carrying on their legacy with a brand new company.

NewWave Events was created in June 2020 by two of Gable Events’ senior Event Managers - Alicja Mierzejewska & Lucy Morton - with the full support of the owners of Gable Events.

"We have purchased their equipment and are taking on many of their annual events like this one. We cannot wait to deliver this amazing event again and we hope to see you all there! "There will be some exciting new features including an option for Online Booking Entry Form and an Online Live Results Page on the day. We are so excited for the return of this amazing event, all in aid of charity."

They will be announcing next year’s official sponsors and partners very soon, so head over to to keep up to date and follow NewWave Events on socials for all the latest announcements!
