The Angling Trust is pleased to announce that this year’s RiverFest competition will see four new qualifying venues as well as a new final venue.

The new venues are the River Trent at Burton Joyce, the River Thames at Reading, the North Bank of the River Nene and the River Thames, Abingdon to Appleford.

The final will take place on the River Severn at Shrewsbury over the weekend of 3rd and 4th of November and, in case of high water, the same venue has been booked for three consecutive reserve weekends after these dates.

The 24 qualifying matches will see 1,440 anglers competing for a shot at the £13,000 top prize from a prize pot of almost £40,000. Subject to all tickets being sold, RiverFest 2018 will see 10 main prizes in the final ranging from £1000 for 10th place, up to £13,000 to the winner. Six peg section prizes of £250 will also be paid out for both of the final days.

How to Book Tickets

Tickets for the 60 peg qualifiers will be sold via the Angling Trust Events booking website HERE making the purchase of tickets quicker and easier with anglers able to book, pay and receive their tickets instantaneously. Due to the incredibly high demand the Angling Trust has introduced a process that ensures all anglers who want to fish in the competition can book at least one ticket for a qualifier.

Tickets will be released in two rounds:

• Round One will be open from 10.30am on Monday 26th March until midnight on Thursday 5th April and anglers will be able to book a maximum of one ticket per angler during this round.

• Round Two will open at 10.30am on Thursday 12th April and remain open until the final qualifier at the end of October. There will be no restriction on the number of tickets anglers will be able to book. Cancellations will be re-listed in the online system and sold on a first come first served basis. The remaining tickets of qualifying anglers will go back on sale every Monday at 1pm. A ticket subscription option will be available for anglers seeking cancelled tickets.

The Angling Trust has a ‘How to Book RiverFest Tickets’ guide and a short video available on the website HERE
