Runnymede Borough Council is pleased to announce the 2018 Rivers Celebration, which aims to celebrate all things river related.
We will be working with partners to honour the rivers that run through our borough. There will be activities throughout the year showcasing the fantastic activities, sport and culture our community offers.
There will also be one-off events put on especially for the celebration.
From regattas to exhibitions and pond dipping to river walks – there will be something for everyone.
|If you’re a local business, charity, or individual and you would like to be a part of the celebrations, sponsor the festival or if you would like to tell us what activities you would like to see, e-mail the Community Development Team and we’d be pleased to hear from you.|
Check out the incredible “A Year on Runnymede’s Rivers” film put together by TJ Lane, playing on youtube and big screens across the programme of events:
