Be Richmond

Be Richmond is the ‘brand persona’ of Richmond BID, a non-profit, self-funded alliance of over 300 businesses in Richmond upon Thames town centre. The main aims of Be Richmond are to promote the town and its businesses to the wider world, enhance the look and feel of the environment and to engage with all business and residential communities.


With its beautiful riverside setting, unrivalled transport connections and thriving retail and hospitality offer, Richmond is home to many world famous brands and highly-paid executives.

The CACI 2016 Wealth of the Nation report ranked Richmond as the UK’s wealthiest borough with an estimated annual income of £5.1 billion.

Events Programme

A key part of Be Richmond’s activities is to run a programme of high-quality, community events that support the above aims.

By delivering outstanding events in partnership with our business and residential communities, we believe that residents and workers in our immediate and outer catchments areas will stay local, buy local and support local services.

There are three main events throughout the year:

The Richmond May Fair – a longstanding community charity event

Get On Board– a unique environmental event that attracts significant media interest

Christmas Lights – a hugely popular family event
