Lighting Up the Lea - 21st and 22nd of September!

‘Totally Thames is an annual celebration of the River Thames and its tributaries with a creative and diverse programme that inspires, connects and enthrals’

Cody Dock will be hosting the “Lighting Up the Lea” festival as part of Totally Thames 2019. The weekend will have an array of local watersports clubs and organisations that will participate in a mini regatta and give demonstrations. The Canal and Rivers Trust and Thames 21 and Cody Dock will also be highlighting volunteer opportunities.

There will be live music, entertainment, workshops and a licenced bar. The café will be open serving teas, coffees, cakes and home cooked foods.

The gallery at Cody Dock will display a photography exhibition from the winners of our annual Calendar Photo Competition entries highlighting the River Lea.

On Saturday Cody Dock’s Lea River Duck Race will start at 12:00 from Twelvetrees Crescent Bridge by Bow Locks, taking the ½ km route to Cody Dock. If you back the first duck over the line you can win a free venue hire of Cody Dock’s Community Boat and there will also be prizes for runners ups. All ducks carry a unique number and tickets can be purchased at Cody Dock and local participant stores for £2.

On Sunday we will host a mini regatta and rowing demonstrations.

Accessibility: Good wheelchair accessibility on site and disabled toilet available. Some access onto community boat is restricted.
