Nightingale House Duck Race

03/09/2017 @ 11:00 - 16:00


The search is on for the quickest quacker in town and you are invited to flock to the Nightingale House Duck Race at the Royal Oak, Bangor-on-Dee. Numbered plastic ducks are released on the river and followed avidly by their backers to a point downstream where the first ones into the finishing funnel are declared the winners. You can adopt your duck in advance for £2 or design your own duckling on the day for £1.

What’s more, businesses and organisations can get creative with the chance to decorate giant 32cm ducks ahead of our grand corporate race on the day. You can sponsor a giant duck for £200.


Watch out for our quacky fundraisers who will be out and about selling ducks in your community at a range of events and locations throughout the summer.

It will be all to play for on the day with heats, a grand final, duckling dash, a spectacular `decorated duck’ Corporate Race and a host of fun competitions and cash prizes.

Every penny raised from the races will go to helping Nightingale House care for your friends, loved ones or neighbours as you would wish. The Nightingale House Duck Race will really be fun for all the family with stalls and refreshments, duck crafts, decorate a duck, face painting and much more.

We hope to see you there!

For more information, or to order your duck, give us a call on 01978 314 292.
