Boat trips, live music, river dipping and canoe taster sessions on offer
Party on the Pier is a popular annual event
Party on the Pier is an annual highlight down at Chiswick Pier and is a great day out for all the family.
Always popular are the free boat trips aboard the Golden Salamander, courtesy of sponsors Fullers. The trips will run every 45 minutes, and you can pick up your ticket on the day.
Amanda from Amanda’s Action Kids will be there to entertain the little ones. Also, to delight the children, there will be face painting. There will be lots of stalls, activities, food and drink, the London Pride Fullers Bar, homemade Italian ice cream and live music.
Chiswick Pier Canoe Club are offering canoe taster sessions which must be booked in advance through email@example.com. Thames Explorer are running river dipping sessions, which are a guided exploration of the foreshore, from 12.30-2.30pm meeting at the Pier House. The RNLI will have information about its work, and a souvenir stall whilst the Sea Cadets will be helping with the smooth running of the boat trips and a tombola.
There are a variety of artisan craft stalls with a range of goods to browse and treat yourself and the family.
