Come join us at the 2024 Durham Regatta! There is lots to enjoy – free bankside entertainment, delicious food and a weekend of exciting racing!


You will find entertainment for the whole family. We’ve had circus performers, trampoline bungees, and face painting (a great way to show support for your favourite crew).

Throughout the day we also have talented local bands performing at the historic bandstand.


Food stalls and vans cater for all sorts of tastes. You’ll find everything from British classics like fish and chips to ice cream and sweets.

There are several bars if you are thirsty, and you can always bring your own picnic to enjoy.

Stalls and displays

You’ll find stalls with souvenirs and crafts, as well as some freebies and fun activities.

Classic cars

Don’t miss the opportunity to take a look at the hundreds of beautifully maintained classic cars on display beside the bank.


Head to head racing is exciting, and you’ll find a great sporting atmosphere at the Regatta. From the bankside enclosure you will be really close to the action. It is easy to get caught up in the racing as you cheer on your favourite crew.
