About Eel Pie Records
Eel Pie Records started as an ambitious dream that we (Phil and Kevin) had been talking about since the early 2010s. We had been putting on successful live gigs in the area for a while but wanted to do more and bring a permanent, music based hub to our Twickenham neighbourhood. So after a long search, we found our premises and opened our viny record shop - Eel Pie Records.
The History of High Tide Festival
Part of our vision was to hold a festival and in 2019, we did it. High Tide Festival happened and was amazing. People described it as "the best thing to happen in Twickenham for decades". For obvious reasons, we couldn't hold High Tide in 2020 but in 2021 we did it again. Bigger and better.
High Tide 2022
High Tide 2022 will be even bigger and even better with top quality musical entertainment spread over an expanded 15 stages and performance areas.
Once again, it will be a free event so to cover our costs of staging the event, we need financial support. We have secured significant commercial sponsorship from local businesses, the Council and Discover Twickenham BID. But we need to double up on this and are calling on lovers of live music in our community and beyond to support us to make this happen.
How Your Money Will Be Used?
The money will go primarily to pay the artists but will also contribute to staging and PAs
It will be a day for the community to come together again to smile, dance and enjoy great music, poetry and, for the first time, comedy! Exactly what we all need more of.
What Else Will Be On Offer?
We'll have a fresh brew of the highly popular and tasty High Tide Ale and there will be an expanded range of street food and speciality drinks stalls. And all the fabulous cafes, restaurants and other businesses of Church Street and the wider Twickenham area to enjoy too.
