Welcome to the second year of Know Your Place - a month long festival celebrating the wonderfully rich and varied history of Richmond upon Thames.
Our programme comprises a huge range of events throughout the borough and has something for everyone.
Starting in August and running until the end of September the Know Your Place treasure trail is a great way to explore the borough’s history.
We want explorers of all ages to take part in this huge borough wide adventure.
We will add all the information about the KYPcache on this page on Friday 1 August.
