A fantastic event for all the family on the opening day of the Festival, come down and watch from the riverside as a thousand yellow ducks bob their way down the river... Better still, be a part of the race! Adopt your duck today and help raise funds for St Richard’s.

Arrive early to find a prime spot by the river to enjoy Worcester’s largest and most spectacular free fireworks display as it lights up the city in celebration of the two weeks of festivities. The Worcester Festival Bank Holiday Firework display really is one of the must-see events of the Festival.
