Welcome to the 2018 Sonning Festival

Agree with Ratty from Wind in the willows that there’s ‘nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats?’ then head down to the Sonning Regatta to join in for what promises to be a fun filled family day out on the banks of the River Thames in the historic Berkshire village.

Regatta races are designed for all ages and rowing abilities from aspiring Redgraves and Pinsents to complete novices, its the taking part that counts however if you are more of a land- lubber, theres lots to do on the riverside including childrens entertainment, a beer tent, BBQ and snacks and an assortment of shopping stalls, why not enjoy a picnic while cheering the rowers on and make a day of it.
