In the early morning tens of thousands of Prudential RideLondon cyclists will come flying over Kingston Bridge into Hampton Wick on their way to Hampton Court. And at 11am the Hampton Wick Festival will burst into life - a celebration of live music, food, Tudors, sport, cars, dance, crafts, more Tudors and a fair measure of mayhem.
Here’s a video from last year:
From 11am to 3pm Festival-goers can enjoy the Craft Fair, pony rides, stiltwalkers, BBQs, vintage cars and bikes, circus clown,Tom’s mum’s home-made cake stall, children’s carousel, community stalls, a sponsored bike challenge, Harlequins mascots and Tudors everywhere.
The highlight of the day comes at 12.30pm when The Grand Parade sets off along the High Street, heralded by the pealing of the church bells.
The legendary Hampton Wick Tudors will be out in greater numbers than ever. This year they are joined by Waytes & Measures, playing period music on Tudor instruments and some very grand Tudor ladies who will show us how to dance.
But it’s not all sixteenth century! There’ll be Dixieland jazz from the West Side Syncopators, dancers from the Roaring Twenties, live R’n’B at the Foresters and the one and only Hampton Wick Band headlining at the White Hart.
The pubs will be open with BBQs and music playing all afternoon and on into the evening.
It’s a real Hampton Wick day to remember and everyone’s welcome.
