The Retford Operatic Society Good Friday duck race for 2018 takes place this year in Kings Park, Retford on Friday 30th March. Once again, 1,000 numbered ducks will be dropped into the River Idle at 11.00am in Kings Park. The finishing line is at Morrisons supermarket. The lucky winner will receive a £200 prize (with many more prizes for second to sixth places) and tickets are now on sale from any Operatic Society member. The society are promoting their show this year at the Majestic Theatre — the magnificent My Fair Lady.
Further events will be held in Kings Park from 10.00am on the morning of the duck race including stalls for coffees, ice cream, an Easter egg hamper stall, a cake stall, an Easter tombola and a chance to play the ‘Splat the Rat’ game. Do go along and support the event, which should be great fun.
For any enquiries or if you have waders and would like to help in the river at the finish please contact Mike Mahony on 07970 662798.
