What's on in Guildford

Guildford has a rich and varied cultural scene with first-class venues offering quality entertainment throughout the year, from drama and dance to exhibitions and lectures. Guildford is fortunate to enjoy a wide range of music events, from classical recitals to jazz bands, folk singers to pop groups. 

 There are several free events designed to interest, educate and entertain young and old.  Guildford Green Day, Heritage Open Days, Guildford Cleaner Air Day and the Festive Family Day are highlights of the calendar.  Featuring markets, information, music, and free have-a-go, fun activities, there’s something for everyone. Don't forget to put this year's Guildford Book Festival dates in your diary - 6 - 20 October.   

Whilst summer is certainly alive with all manor of events, including immersive walks, outdoor theatre and music, you'll find amazing things to do from January right through to December.  

All year-round, the cobbled (always referred to as cobbles but they are officially setts) High Street plays host to a monthly Farmers' Market which is held on the 1st Tuesday of Every month and several other markets including vintage, craft and food & drink.   Take a look at our Market's in Guildford page.

Please check the event, venue or organiser websites before you travel to avoid disappointment, as opening dates and times may change.
