Bike Week - Bike+Music Tour

Come and visit venues in the borough that made musical history. See the houses the Beatles lived in the film 'Help!', cycle past the place where Noel Coward was born, visit the venue of the Rolling Stones first gig and many more venues. We'll visit as many places as possible and give you a brief history of each location. We'll end up at the Cabbage Patch pub in Twickenham for their regular Sunday night folk club. Entry will be a discounted £5 and there will be some food available. The Cabbage Patch also hosts the continuation of the legendary Eel Pie club on a Wednesday (the original is part of the tour).

Meet at Richmond train station at 16:30, opposite the site of the Rolling Stones first gig - The Crawdaddy Club. We hope to end up at the Cabbage Patch at 19:00 in time to have something to eat and then move on to their folk club for some music. Folk doesn't take your fancy? Come along anyway, there will be a history leaflet and some music available, so you can stop once we reach the pub and take home a memento of Richmond's musical history. Can't make the ride? Meet us at the pub for an evening of Richmond's finest musical entertainment.
