GEORGEFEST17 12 - 26 August


Thank you to all those who visited the events in 2017 and to all the event organisers who worked so hard to make the festival happen.

We hope to bring another Georgian festival in 2018. Watch this space!


Richmond Georgian Festival - GeorgeFest17

GeorgeFest came back this summer with a two-week festival celebrating Richmond’s rich Georgian heritage.

Taking place between Saturday 12 August and Saturday 26 August, GeorgeFest17 had something for everyone with a wide range of themed events and activities.

As well as a fun programme of fabulous guided walks and fascinating talks, there were events that allowed you to see inside some of the town’s hidden Georgian treasures, including the interior of Culloden Tower and the opportunity to get up close and personal with the town’s church bells.
