The Duck Race, held every New Year’s day in Knaresborough, has become a huge part of everyone’s holiday traditions! Here at Henshaws we have been fortunate enough to be chosen by Knaresborough Cricket Club to be their charity partner in this incredible event.
If you have never witnessed the colourful sight of 5000 ducks being tipped in to the river Nidd, then you simply must make this the first date in your 2019 diary!
The day itself is an incredible spectacle, but for us here at Henshaws, the annual Duck Race has come to mean so much more!
The money donated to our charity has made an incredible difference. In recent years we have been able to purchase a pizza oven which has meant that we have been able to improve our food offering at all of our Summer events. We have also been able to buy a brand new hut, which has had many incarnations from “Prosecco Bar” to “Tapas Shack”. These items have allowed us to increase our takings and raise much needed funds for our Arts and Crafts Centre here in Knaresborough.
We cannot thank the Knaresborough Cricket Club team enough for all that they do to ensure the continuation of this fabulous, Duck based extravaganza, and of course for the money they raise to support our art makers here at the centre.
Tickets will soon be proudly available from the Arts and Craft Centre café so please buy yours!
