10,000 spectators expected to watch the Great River Race in Richmond this Weekend

A reported 10,000 spectators are expected to descend upon Richmond for the biggest event in the river’s calendar, the Great River Race, bringing a spectacular close to the Thames Festival, which has been running all this month across London.

Twickenham will once again come to life with the sights and sounds of Carnival!

This Saturday, 27 September, The Great River Race expects to see more than 300 intrepid crews row their way from Millwall, London Dockyards, at 9:30am, all the way up through central London, past Richmond, with the front runners finishing up at Ham House riverside by 16:40 (the back runners may take a few more hours…).

It’s a mammoth undertaking, and there are sure to be many sore arms afterwards. The idyllic settings of Richmond Bridge, and the events planned at Ham house are expected to draw huge numbers of revellers and spectators, it looks like great fun for everyone out to enjoy the river, but may cause disruption for other residents in the area.

Join us at Tide Tables for a filling and nutritious breakfast on the way to the Twickenham Carnival.

Twickenham will once again come to life with the sights and sounds of Carnival!

Starting at York House at 12 noon, the riverside parade will lead crowds to the Carnival village in the grounds of Orleans House Gallery in an explosion of music, dance and spectacular costume. Celebrations will continue throughout the afternoon with a variety of live performance, games, arts activities, food from around the globe and workshops suitable for the whole family. This year Carnival will be celebrating the Hanoverian Tercentenary so join us for an afternoon of Georgian themed Carnival revelry!

Twickenham Carnival is an annual event, and a fantastic free summer celebration for the whole family..
