The TideFest event is centred around Kew Bridge and Strand-on-the-Green. There’s kayaking, paddleboarding, river dipping, guided foreshore walks, boat trips, an angling competition, nature reserve visits, artists displays, seine netting, live fish tanks, museum discounts, children’s games, stalls, music, refreshments and much more. Some activities require booking, so have a look at the event website:
