Boat Race Party
12.30pm, Sunday 7 April
Chiswick Pier, The Pier House, Corney Reach Way, Chiswick, London W4 2UG
Come along to the Pier House where you can not only watch the start and finish of the race on the big screen but also walk outside to experience the live action as the boats pass. Chiswick Pier provides one of the best views of the race as you can watch the crews power upstream from Chiswick Eyot, past the Pier and through to the final bend before Barnes Railway Bridge.
Have a bite to eat before the races begin and listen to the sound of the popular band Shenanigans. Freshly cooked food from the barbeque will be served along with the best value beer on the river at the Fuller’s bar. In honour of the RNLI being chosen as the official charity partner for the boat race they will be selling Prosecco, so come and raise a glass and celebrate the great job that they do. Also available will be hot drinks, cakes and ice cream.
Again this year all four races will take place on the same day. The schedule will be: 2.15 Women’s Race: 3.15 Men’s Race. Between these two races will be the women’s reserve crews followed by the men’s reserve crews. We expect the boats to pass Chiswick Pier approximately 11 minutes after the start times.
