Fishing Festivals at White Acres

Angling holidays are all about relaxing in tranquil surroundings by the water... but they don't have to be. While you're here, you can try your luck in our weekly resident matches or catch some festival action. See below for details of our upcoming festivals and matches.

If you’re interested in booking one of the matches available during your stay, you can contact us directly. Whether you’re looking to taking part in a festival or just one of the weekly matches at White Acres, you can do so by calling the park on 01726 862 526.

Weekly Matches

In addition to our fishing festivals, you’ll also find a range of weekly resident matches running throughout the season.
