East Twickenham Village

'East Twickenham Village' is an umbrella organisation uniting residential, leisure and church groups in the neighbourhood. East Twickenham Village, the historic 'cité belge sur la Tamise' (Belgian city on the Thames) is working to showcase the story of the First World War Belgian community of Richmond & Twickenham during the coming Centenary years. The whole story will be told in a musical drama-documentary in May 2015, expected to take place in St. Stephens Church. This will bring together some of the Borough's leading artists, musicians and dancers as well as community groups and schoolchildren. ETV also plan for a piece of open-air sculpture by the river, just outside the site of the Belgian munitions works which brought the community into being. ETV are also contributing to public exhibitions and lectures.
