Summer Solstice Canoeing

Join us for canoeing and pizza on Summer Solstice, Thursday 21st June.

If there ever was a day to channel your inner hippie, feel at one with nature and spend time outdoors in the evening it has to be Summer Solstice!

You will have the canoes for 1.5 hours and we suggest that you paddle into the city centre – past Cow Tower, Quay Side, the Arts University and the Playhouse until you reach New Mills Yard. Along the way you’ll also see the old Bullard and Sons Anchor Brewery and the derelict Eastern Electricity Building which still has Sir Thomas More’s novel Utopia painted on it (by artist Rory Macbeth).

Once you’ve explored this side of Norwich you will paddle back and if you’d like you can continue past the Red Lion towards the train station. You go under Bishops Bridge, alongside Riverside Road until you reach the train station and Riverside area. Depending on how much time you have left, this may be where you spin round and head back to our base at the Red Lion pub.

We will be serving slices of authentic Italian pizza, homemade and baked at the Red Lion. Pizzas will be coming out between 7.30 – 8.30 so plenty of time for everyone to enjoy a few slices either before or after your canoe rental, depending on your start time! There will be different varieties and vegetarians are catered for. Unfortunately we can’t cater for other dietary requirements.

Start Times
We have two slots available for start times: 6pm and 8pm and you will canoe for roughly 1.5hrs.

Please note this is not a guided trip. You can go out with your group and paddle at your own pace.

Price per person: £15 and this includes the pizza!
Please note: For our events we require full payment upfront and all sales are final. You are able to give your ticket to someone else though if you are not able to attend 🙂

Ps. Kids are very welcome to come along, however under 16s do need to be accompanied by at least one adult per canoe.
Pps. Flowery headbands and other hippie-inspired attire is most welcome!
