The Old Leigh Regatta 2014

Leigh Regatta 2014

The Leigh Regatta in Leigh-on-Sea is an annual charity event organised by the three Scout/Explorers groups based in the Old Town. Each year, the event raises money for an additional nominated charity as well as for the local Scout  groups around Southend-on-Sea.

This year it will be run by the Leigh-on-Sea Lions Club. They invite any local charities or recognised voluntary groups to participate with a free stall. They are not accepting commercial traders or food vendors on the day. Applicants must provide full liability insurance and risk assessments covering their activity. Closing data for application is 31st August 2014. You can contact rexp@blueyonder.co.uk for more information.

The Old Leigh High Street will close for the whole day, allowing the Leigh Regatta to take full advantage of the space for all the entertainment, craft stalls, side shows, competitions and water events.
