Last year's Deepings Raft Race

The annual event always brings out some great fancy dress outfits, and this year’s theme of Mardi Gras/carnival attire should once again bring out plenty of colourful raft and costume designs.

Children’s mini rafts will again feature this year, while as usual there will be lots of varied stalls, a funfair and various supporting activities.

Anyone making or selling crafts/goods, or something unusual, can go onto the event’s website at, where they can also book a stall or enter a raft.
