The first event organised by the Friends of Hampton Wick Library proved to be a sell-out success.

On 27th April 2016 the Friends hosted a preview reception and talk on the History of Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club.

The event launched an exhibition on the same theme which runs in the Library until 30th June.

The preview took place in the Library where guests gathered for a first look at the exhibition while enjoying a glass of wine.

Dr Chris French, co-author of a book on the subject, then gave a very interesting illustrated talk in Bullen Hall.

The evening was a great success, showcasing a little-known facet of our local history and encouraging people to visit the Library. One measure of success was that there was standing room only in Bullen Hall!

The exhibition is based on the history of the HWRCC and includes references, photos and features of interest about St John’s Church, Kingsfield, the Royal Paddocks Allotments and of course Hampton Wick itself.

This fascinating exhibition has been organised by the Friends of Hampton Wick Library. The Library is open on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
