The World Cycling Revival Festival is a brilliant 3-day festival in London. It’s taking place at the newly re-opened Herne Hill Velodrome, one of the oldest and most famous cycling tracks in the world. There will be endless things to do (all in 1940s-style fancy dress), including cycling races to watch, live music to listen to, unique exhibitions and activities to enjoy whilst eating and drinking to your heart’s content in the sunshine. A perfect day out for those who like racing, music and tweeds. Join us for a British Garden Party like no other.
