THE RICHMOND MAY BALL ON RICHMOND GREEN

It's an event etched firmly into the fabric of Richmond Life.  This black tie event celebrates the start of the May Fair weekend.  Located on the historic Richmond Green, the ball features a champagne reception, fine food and wine, cocktail bar, auction, dancing to a live band and a variety of other entertainment. It is regularly attended by over 450 guests.

Over the years, the Richmond May Ball has raised more than a million pounds for around 20 local charities.

FOUNDERS

'The pandemic gave us a greater sense of our local community and the importance of Richmond's Open Spaces.  This is an opportunity to deliver a spectacular evening on Richmond Green for local residents and their guests whilst raising much needed funds for two very deserving local charities'
