One of the brilliant things about Thames Tidefest is the atmosphere that is generated around Kew Bridge and Strand On The Green during the event. It’s absolutely joyful !
Thames TideFest took place for the first time in 2014 on World Rivers Day to highlight and celebrate the recreational importance of the Thames Tideway to Londoners. In the years since we have built on this success and the festival has firmly established itself as a key date in the London diary. We concentrate on free events and encouraging those who attend to use the wonderful local shops and pubs, learn more about the river, it’s wildlife and it’s history and just spend some time enjoying the the Thames !
Thames Tidefest is now in its eighth year and is a celebration of all that the River Thames has to offer. It aims to help Londoners reconnect with their river and is a day packed with loads of great activities for all the family. We are delighted to announce that Tidefest will be held on September 12th, so get the date in your diaries.
We are taking things one step at a time at the moment with regards to our usual full programme of events, but we certainly intend to put on a fantastic selection of events in line with whatever restriction are in place as we get to September. Expect to be thrilled by ‘mudlark’ style archaeology, guided walks, canoeing, paddleboarding, fishing, and a whole host of activities which showcase the Thames’s amazing history and wildlife.
