July 7, 2015


This year's fabulous Wetherby Duck Race will be taking place on the final day of the popular Wetherby Food Festival.  All 2,000 ducks will be given an individual ticket number and released at 11am by local celebrity Christine Talbot, flocking their way along a 300m course finishing at the Ings metal footbridge.


Wetherby Lions will this year be supported by students & staff from Wetherby High School and local businesses, raising funds for the York Rescue Boat Fund in celebration of the life of Megan Roberts.


Duck tickets are just £2 and available at numerous shops throughout Wetherby:

1. Hopscotch Shoes, Crossley Street

2. Kool Kidz, North Street

3. Sweet Temptation, North Street

4. Sant' Angelos, High Street

Businesses are invited to sponsor a Corporate Duck for £20 and Wetherby Lion's will donate £50 to the winners chosen charity. Contact: for more information.
