The annual Full of Life Fair is Richmond upon Thames’ flagship event for residents aged over 55. It is a great opportunity to get information and advice from businesses, charities and community groups from across the borough and to meet new people. You can also speak to Council staff directly about key local services.
Join us at the Full of Life Fair on Friday 4 October at the RFU, Twickenham. There will be 80 stalls plus activities and workshops, as well as a free café for all residents aged 55+.
Date: Friday 4 October 2019
Time: 10am to 4pm
Location: The Rose Suite, RFU Twickenham Stadium, 200 Whitton Road, Twickenham TW2 7BA
Over 1,000 residents and carers attended the fair in 2018 to celebrate the contribution older residents make to the borough, and this year will be no different.
The day-long event will have around 80 stalls to browse and the chance to try out a number of activities including fitness and dance demonstrations. There will also be a programme of talk sessions as well as live music and dance performances on the day, and a relaxation room where residents can try yoga and meditation.
