River Festival

11:00 am to 4:00 pm

The Moors National Park Centre, Danby, YO21 2NB

Cost: Adult - Free (Child - Free)

Join us at our very first River Festival, a celebration of our wonderful and captivating waterways in a free day full of family fun, children's crafts and passionate river lovers! You can learn about river wildlife, go on a river walk, watch fishing demonstrations, have a go at fly casting - led by professional fisherman Olly Shepherd from Fly Fishing Yorkshire - and get up-close and personal with river bugs!

As well as the free drop-in activities and demonstrations, there are hands-on exhibitions, an art gallery, café and an adventure play area.

This event is organised by Esk and Coastal Streams Catchment Partnership (a partnership between the Yorkshire Esk Rivers Trust and the North York Moors National Park), and is part of the ‘Discovering the Esk project’, which has received a funding boost from the Postcode Local Trust, thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Everyone is welcome to attend this *FREE* family fun day - we look forward to seeing you there!
