Totally Thames Festival - Bottle Relay

Sep 6 2015 12:00 PM

Totally Thames brings the river to life with a month-long season of river-related events: art, music, open days, family fun, talks, walks and boats galore.

Now in its third year the Source to Sea River Relay is bigger and more diverse than ever.  The Bottle’s journey will begin at the source of the river in a field near Kemble in Gloucestershire where it will be filled with fresh Thames water.  The Bottle will then be helped on its journey downstream towards London by rowers, walkers, swimmers, paddleboarders, kayakers, sailors, punters and many more.

As part of the Totally Thames Relay we are currently hosting the bottle until Monday when it will be carried from Kew Bridge to the riverside Headquarters of British Rowing (BR) next to Hammersmith Bridge.

We also have a free guided tour at 2.30pm today as part of the festival and full details of the other great events can be found on the Totally Thames website
