The 20th Peterborough Dragon Boat Festival is to take place on the Peterborough Rowing Lake at Thorpe Meadows on June 9.

A major fundraiser for Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, the organisers are expecting a bumper turn out of more than 30 teams, with entries now being invited.

The Hospice charity has to raise £2.3 million in 2018 to continue providing end of life care to people across the region and hopes to raise £20,000 through the festival.

The 2018 Dragon Boat Festival is sponsored by Motorpoint.
