Twickenham and Richmond have a long history of Blues and Jazz from the days of the Eel Pie Hotel on Eel pie Island where many musicians like Rod Stewart ,The Rolling Stones and David Bowie (then Davie Jones and the The Manish Boys ) played early gigs in the 1960’s. The hotel may be gone but the love of music continues with The Eel Pie Club playing in The Cabbage Patch pub on most Thursday evenings, it is also the venue for the folk nights on Sundays

Join us on our full day Royal Deer Park Bike Tour before the gig maybe? We’ll provide the bikes from Richmond Station, enjoy the riverside cycle + Royal Park of Richmond, hop on a ferry to Twickenham and have a picnic of afternoon tea. We’ll recommend a good place for food before you enjoy your evening at the Eel Pie Club.
