The Richmond Carers Centre Culture Club is a programme of short trips to places of interest within easy striking distance of the borough. Trips usually last approximately three hours, though there are often opportunities to stay longer if you wish. Culture Club places are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and we will contact you to confirm your place. Richmond Carers Centre relies on donations to keep the cost of Culture Club trips as affordable as possible so that carers usually pay a reduced amount towards trips. The Culture Club is open to all adult carers registered with Richmond Carers Centre. To book a space on any of our culture club trips, please email or call 020 8867 2380.

Culture Club events require a considerable amount of planning, including pre-booking tickets and meals. We also carry out a risk assessment to ensure our volunteer leader has all the information necessary to manage the event on the day. Please note that we may not be able to accommodate late bookings and unfortunately carers will be turned away if they just turn up on the day. To avoid disappointment please note the last booking and payment date for each trip.

Carers Culture Club is currently suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Any developments regarding an online Carers Culture Club will be announced on this page and in the monthly digital newsletter. We will also email those carers who have signed up to receive information about the Carers Culture Club.
