It's that time of year again when the good residents of Twickenham get together for the Twickenham Carnival.
This year, Sunday 13th June is the date, and this free event runs from Midday to 5pm.
The celebrations kick off with floats, steel bands, drummers and dancers leading a parade from York House, along Twickenham Riverside, to a carnival village in the gardens of Orleans House Gallery.
Live music and dance, including samba and capoeira, foods from around the world and children’s workshops and art activities will entertain all ages throughout the afternoon.
With over 3500 people attending last year, the Richmond Council-run event hopes to be even bigger this year - and shows every sign of achieving this.
It's a very popular event for people of all ages, a great day out for families and children, packed full of lively fun and celebration.
