We organise events to share our enjoyment of the river and hopefully raise much needed funds for the restoration and conservation of the River Stour Navigation.

The River Stour Trust is keen to encourage enjoyment of the river from a young age and the majority of our events are suitable for family groups. Click on the links below to find out more.

Sudbury Club Regatta

This popular event takes place on the Saturday of the first weekend of August each year. The 650m Rowing course is raced upstream from a stake boat start along a course characterised by some challenging bends. One of the highlights of the regatta is the sprint eights event, racing for hip-flasks along the last and straighter 350m.



River Stour Festival

This inaugural event happily coincides with our 50th Anniversary Year! It will celebrate the river, its culture, surrounding landscape and people throughout 2018. It will provide an impetus to arts, nature, health, environment and businesses in the Stour Valley and beyond, and an ambition to connect both local people and visitors with the rich landscape on our doorstep.
