Celebrate Guildford

This summer head to Guildford and enjoy a wonderfully broad programme of events planned between May and September.

Celebrate Guildford is a joint collaboration between the Business Improvement District, Experience Guildford and Guildford Borough Council.  

The programme includes traditional events such as the Raft Race, Guildford Beer Festival as well as a wealth of outdoor drama performances.  Take a picnic, relax and listen to a free bandstand concert in the Castle Grounds or learn more about our historic town on a free guided walking tour.

We hope the English weather is kind to us and the whole family can enjoy the full range of diverse events - keep scrolling for a full list of events.

Remember to keep checking back as events are regularly added to our site.
