The annual Old Leigh Regatta is a charity event organised by the three Scout/Explorers groups based in the Old Town, who benefit from your generous support. Also the event raises money each year for an additional nominated charity as well as for the local scout groups.
Old Leigh High Street closes on these two days to allow all the entertainment, competitions, side shows, craft stalls and water events.
There is live music for all tastes (various bands playing all weekend on different stages), Morris dancing, banana eating, cracker eating and cockle eating competitions, for both children and adults. Also climbing the greasy pole and Bowsprit pillow fighting. There are also water based events including Dinghy Tug of War, Dinghy Sculling Races and the Sailing Races from local sailing clubs.
