Catch The Boat Race Action On Chiswick Pier
Lots of activity to help you forget the cold
The weather may be chilly for the Boat Race but the Chiswick Pier Trust has lots going on before and during the race on March 31st,
This year marks the 159th Boat Race. Since the second race in 1836 the contest has taken place on the West London stretch of the Thames, starting at Putney and finishing at Chiswick Bridge, so, not only do you get a fantastic view from Chiswick Pier, but can usually predict who will win.
There will be something going on all afternoon – the Pier House opens at 12.30
The Riverside Club will be painting young faces from 2.30pm. Then there is a Cutter Parade, featuring a group of cutters which will be moving up river from Dove Pier to Chiswick Bridge, clearing the course by 15.50. This is followed by two races, the Isis versus Goldie Race will start at 16.00 and then the Oxford versus Cambridge Race at 16.30.
