Marketing, Promotion and Events

Twickenham is a thriving, riverside town full of quirky shops, fabulous pubs, diverse restaurants, a vibrant cultural scene and a rich musical history. It is home to a succesful media and publishing industry and an exploding fin-tech landscape. All this set alongside one of the most beautiful and accessible stretches of the River Thames.

Twickenham’s high quality but unpretentious architecture includes gems such as Marble Hill House, Orleans House, York House and the celebrated ‘Naked Ladies’ fountains.

Twickenham’s unique place in popular musical history, centred on Eel Pie Island, features early performances of global icons such as The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Pink Floyd as well as inspirational black American blues musicians such as Muddy Waters.

Visitors and locals also enjoy the bucolic charm of Twickenham Green with its excellent selection of surrounding pubs and restaurants.

Supporting existing events and delivering new business-led events in the town centre

Twickenham has a strong community feel to it and the BID. The business research indicated that businesses like the events delivered by the BID and would like to see more of them. Therefore the BID will focus on the following projects:

Event sponsorship and support

The BID will continue to recognise the current successful and well-established events within the town centre which contribute to vibrancy, and promote increased community spirit. We will also look to provide additional funding to support these events.

Deliver new and enhanced events

The BID will focus on driving an events programme each year to maintain a strong sense of community and, importantly, will enhance its marketing strategy. The outcomes of this will be to promote and deliver events in Twickenham that help create a ‘destination’ in the BID area, rather than being limited to the Rugby stadium.
