The Festival, which was inspired by the success of the Twickenham Riverside Regatta in September 2011, will include three days of river based activities. Church Street will host a Jubilee Street Party, Craft Market and Italian Market, while St Mary’s Church will be holding their annual Fayre. There will be many open days including Turner’s House, Pope’s Grotto, the Mary Wallace Theatre, Richmond Yacht Club, Twickenham Yacht Club and Twickenham Rowing Club.
The Twickenham Riverside Jubilee Festival will start with the traditional Tug of War outside the Barmy Arms and the popular Morris dancers will be making their customary appearance. Twickenham Alive aims to bring new events to the Festival and will be working up until the last minute to make this the most exciting festival to take place in Twickenham.
