The St Catherine’s Hospice Dragon Boat Festival next month will have a medieval theme.

Some 30 teams will race across Tilgate Lake in 40 foot dragon boats to raise cash for charity on September 7.

Visitors can try their hand at jousting, fire a crossbow, or make a medieval bracelet.

Laura Kelly, corporate fundraiser at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “Our whole purpose at St Catherine’s is to provide vital support to people who are facing a terminal illness and their families. To do this, we have to raise £5.5million every year and events like our flagship Dragon Boat Festival make a huge difference by helping us to reach that all-important total. I’d like to thank all of our sponsors, our corporate teams, and everyone who joins us on the day; it’s going to be heaps of fun and a great way to raise money for St Catherine’s.”
