The Teddington River Festival and Teddington Lifeboat Station Open Day is a family fun day enjoyed by thousands of visitors with a variety of activities across the river including live music, boat rides, river rescue demonstrations, skiffing, rowing and kayaking taster sessions, craft & community stalls, fairground rides and inflatables and so much more.
With the theme ‘Leisure and pleasure on the Thames’, the 2014 festival provided an ideal platform for the, Teddington Lifeboat Station and RNLI Fundraisers, the River Thames Boat Project and its specially adapted Dutch barge ‘Thames Venturer’, the Twickenham Sea Cadets and many other charitable organisations to recruit new members, raise awareness and funds for their cause. More than £6,000 was raised throughout the day for all the charities and not for profit organisations involved. Watch the highlights of the festival via our short video taken throughout the day:
We are also very grateful to all the individuals and organisations who support the event through sponsorship and benefit in kind. The festival simply cannot take place without this level of support. Visit our sponsors page to find out who supported the event this year.
It is hoped that the Teddington River Festival and Teddington Lifeboat Station Open Day will grow from strength to strength each year promoting the River Thames, all those that provide the many sporting and leisure activities on and along the river as well as the RNLI who provide the much needed rescue services on the river. Preparations and plans are already underway for 2015.
