If you’re looking for a venue that is versatile, affordable and conveniently located, look no further than the Richmond Athletic Ground (The RAG).
The RAG is an ideal location for corporate and private events whether conferences & meetings; private celebrations; weddings; wakes; commercial filming and film crew parking or Christmas parties. Our in-house events team will be delighted to work with you to meet your needs and deliver a first-class event for you.
Built in 1886, The RAG is located in the heart of Richmond as part of Old Deer Park – a huge continuous leisure area.
Set over 26 acres of green space - the site is bordered by Pools on the Park leisure centre and Royal Mid Surrey Golf Club. Up to the 1990s, a driving range and Richmond Bowls Club also bordered the Ground. When these closed down, three pitches were marked out on the driving range and what was the Bowls Club is now an AstroTurf area which may be hired out for a variety of activities.
The RAG has been the home of two of the country's most well-known and historical rugby clubs - namely Richmond FC and London Scottish FC - for well over 100 years.
