Love live music? Come and join us on a live music bike ride
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 Royal Deer Park Bike Tour before the gig maybe? We’ll provide the bikes from Richmond Station, pass remains of Richmond Palace, enjoy the riverside + Royal Park of Richmond Park, 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.
The Crawdaddy Club has returned to Richmond!
Originating at the Station Hotel opposite Richmond Station in the early sixties, then moving to Richmond Athletic Club, bands like The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, Manfred Mann etc played here. The Club has been revived, with plans to welcome well established blues and rock bands and introduce some new young talent.
