An old friend from my 18 plus days is arranging a reunion for Bedford 18 Plus Members at this years river festival (2nd largest event of its type after Notting Hill Carnival) on the 12th of July at the one of our old meeting venues the embankment hotel.
We used to organize the raft race that forms one of the major river based events. (circa 1000 participents) and 200,000 Plus spectators.
We used to consider the river festival race a warm up for our 3 day 18plus raft race where we took over a large sports center set up a camp site for 1400+ people and ran 3 of days of evening events and a raft race on the Saturday.
