To celebrate the year Wokingham Waterside Centre run a bonfire night paddle, a chilled evening paddle by torchlight and hopefully lit by fireworks seen from the river. Everyone is welcome to join in; canoes, kayaks or katakanus will be available to choose from.

What to bring

Please come prepared for your time on the water. We recommend casual, sporty clothing in layers so you can adjust to the weather. A fleece with waterproofs are great if you have them, if not we have some tops/trousers that you can borrow to wear over your clothes for the session. Please bring shoes that you do not mind getting wet and a change of clothes for ‘just in case’.


• Participant should be comfortable on and around the water, please let us know if you have any concerns surrounding this.

• You should be able to partake in physical activity for this period of time, please check with your doctor or call us with any concerns.


Join us on Bonfire Night for an evening paddle and to hopefully catch a unique view of some fireworks from the river!
