Tickets £1.00 

Will yours be the lucky one to cross
the finish line first?

Business duck

Local Calne based companies can also purchase a commercial duck (decoy duck size) and decorate it to represent their business. With prizes for the best dressed duck and first past the finish line.

School duck

Local Schools and Children’s Groups also have their own race – letting their creativity run riot on their decoy ducks.

Stalls at the Duck Race

There are craft, food and community stalls near the finishing line at Marden House and the Town Hall and a great day out is had by all.


Santa Sleigh

Every December Lions Club of Calne members join forces with Father Christmas for collecting door to door for local causes.

Watch out for the sleigh at a road near you between 6-8pm, Monday to Friday and outside Sainsbury’s at the Pippin on Saturday mornings.

Don’t worry you can’t miss the brightly coloured sleigh and the festive music from Santa’s own personal sound system!
