The Festival always starts with the great spectacle of the Tug of War in Church Street. This year on the 8th of June. The street fills with many hundreds of spectators who come to watch the local teams competing for their winning firkin of beer donated by the Eel Pie Pub. Award winning Sound Engineers Britannia Row provide the music and sound system.The event is compered by Stuart Green from The Cabbage Patch.

If you would like to enter a team please email with the title “Twickenham Festival Tug of War”. Teams are made of 8 but many teams like to have 10 team members as there may be a few heats and changeovers are sometimes a good idea. It is free to enter. The maximum amount of teams that can enter is 15, and all the team members need to fill in a disclaimer before they take part.
