Jan 27 @ 7:15 pm – Jan 28 @ 1:00 pm

Members of the Wreckers Wednesday and the London Cornish Pilot Gig Club have decided to start a singing/shanty group and the wonderful Cadgwith Singers are coming (25 strong) to help them get started.  There will be a “practice” on the Friday night, 27th January at the Cabbage Patch Pub in London Road, Twickenham followed by singing in the pub and pasties fresh from Cornwall. There will be another “practice” on Saturday morning, the 28th January, before heading to see the Cornish Pirates take on the London Welsh at 2pm in Richmond. That will also be followed by more singing!

If you are free and able to come along to all or part of it, you would be most welcome. Anyone wanting to stay involved in the singing would be great too.

Twickenham Dragon Boat Races 2017 – Para Kernowyon Loundres/Team London Cornish @ Twickenham Alive Dragon Boat Races
Aug 6 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm

The racing takes place, one boat against the other, on a short course in front of Eel Pie Island in the heart of Twickenham, as part of a festival day with bands,stalls etc. The boats, paddles, life jackets etc are all supplied by the event company.

The racing is fast and furious but thankfully short. The more co-ordinated the paddling the better. We won’t know how many races there will be until the day.
Hopefully there will be a St Piran’s flag or bunting so you can easily find the team on the quayside. Feel free to bring family, friends or spectators.
