Runnymede Borough Council is pleased to announce the 2018 Rivers Celebration, which aims to celebrate the River Thames and all things river related.
We will be working with partners to honour the rivers that run through our borough, including the Thames. 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 along the Thames – 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 River Celebrations, sponsor the rivers 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.|
