TideFest is a fast growing new river Thames event which took place for the first time in 2014 on World Rivers Day to highlight and celebrate the recreational importance of the Thames Tideway to Londoners. In the years since they have built on this success and the festival has firmly established itself as a key date in the London diary.
Tidefest includes a wide variety of river based events in Chiswick, Kew, Brentford, Barnes, and elsewhere along the tidal Thames. Guests can expect to take part in ‘mudlark’ style archaeology, guided walks, canoeing, paddleboarding, fishing, and a whole host of activities which showcase the Thames’s amazing history and wildlife.
This year’s angling championship will once again be donated to the childrens angling charity Get Hooked on Fishing and the tickets are on sale now. This year’s trophy will be dedicated to the memory of Mike Martin-Davies, the talented Welsh match angler and three times Tidefest winner who sadly died of Coronavirus in January. It will be engraved with his name.
Subject to each activity. Angling tickets are £20 all in – £15 pools plus £5 ticket – proceeds to Get Hooked on Fishing
