Amidst our twenty-six acres of green rugby pitches in the heart of Richmond, the atmosphere at Richmond Athletic Ground is one of understanding and peace, the perfect wake venue. We are an ideal location to celebrate the life of your loved one and host their final farewell.
Our two bar areas available for hire provide a traditional and simple environment for the day, and our Event Manager will be on hand to help you organise everything from start to finish.

Customer service is so important to our team, and we understand that this may be a vulnerable time you and your family, so we are more than happy to do everything we can to make the process as easy as possible.
We can recommend the timings of the day, the best buffet food to serve with our in house caterers, and even the layout of the room – or we are happy to be led by your wake venue requirements.
Just come in for a chat and let us know exactly how you want things to go.

Included in the price of room hire is the use of our sofas and armchairs, any tables and chairs needed, an AV system for speeches and background music, free parking for all your guests, and a fully stocked bar, all run and supervised by our professional and conscientious events team.

Room hire starts from just £300+vat for the afternoon, for further information please contact us here or email events@the-raa.co.uk

“Just wanted to thank you very much for all your help with organising the wake for my mum. You made everything very easy for us at what is a very difficult time.
The afternoon went really well and we had a lovely time catching up with family and friends and everyone said how much they enjoyed it – my mum would have loved it, bless her”
