Twickenham Festival 7-23 June 2019

Twickenham Festival 7-23 June 2019

The Twickenham Town Business and Church Street Association has started to sketch out dates & preliminary plans for the Twickenham Festival which will be 7th June until the 23rd of June. It will start with the Tug of War on the Friday, followed by the Craft Market on the Sunday the 9th and the following weekend will be Church Street Goes Green. We would like to have a music festival within the Twickenham Festival utilising the new businesses in Church Street that would make for great venues; the new Brewery market, Eel Pie Records as well as established venues such as the Fox and Eel Pie, also reaching out to the Eel Pie Museum and the Richmond Yacht Club on Eel Pie Island which has been a popular venue for music in the past. We would also like to incorporate Twickenham Alive’s Film Festival into the Twickenham Festival and they are planning to have this at a venue in Church Street or the Riverside like Mary Wallace Theatre and which would take place on the 22nd of June.

If you would like to get involved in any of the events in Church Street as a sponsor or as a participant please email or for more details
