Surrey Day - How to get Involved
The sixth annual Surrey Day takes place on Saturday 11 May 2024 – and we can’t wait to come together to celebrate the delights of our beautiful county.
A free community initiative, Surrey Day is led by a partnership between Visit Surrey, BBC Radio Surrey, and The Surrey Lieutenancy.
It’s one big celebration, open to everyone! All events and activities can be posted for free here on our top-ranking Visit Surrey website – there’s an upload button at the bottom of this page.
The official Surrey Day 2024 logo will be available to download soon. It is available for use for all activities associated with Surrey Day including events and social media.
If you would like to receive a large size logo, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Creativity is the order of the day.
Some ideas to help spark your imagination!
- Pubs and restaurants offering Surrey-themed menus such as afternoon tea
- Devise and promote Surrey-themed hampers and meal boxes full of the flavour of Surrey.
- Unique experiences only available in May or on Surrey Day itself – such as ‘behind the scenes’ tours and tastings
- Trails that people can follow at their leisure – maybe with an arts, nature or heritage theme to encourage them to explore your town or venue
- Exclusive offers or added value on Surrey Day for pre-bookable events or experiences
- Make a film or share a performance or virtual tour
- Run a quiz for your followers with a lovely Surrey Day-inspired prize
- Go green for Surrey Day! With help from Peachy Productions, it's become a tradition for us to bathe Guildford Cathedral in green light at dusk and proudly projecti he Surrey Day badge – and thanks to its elevated location on Stag Hill, this spectacle can be viewed by people from miles around. We will be shortly be announcing more green illumination for Surrey Day – so why not take part, whether it’s your shop window, your village church, your garden or fish tank! Whatever you decide, let us know in advance and be part of our light show on social media.
- We have our own county flag here in Surrey and it would be great to see the county flag raised on Surrey Day. Our flag has a lot of history behind it. Find out more.
As well as uploading your Surrey Day 2024 event(s) on the Visit Surrey website, make sure to share it over social media using the hashtag #SurreyDay and we will share as much positivity as possible! You'll find us at @VisitSurrey on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
On Surrey Day itself, tune into BBC Radio Surrey on 104.6 FM to enjoy a full day of programmes dedicated to Surrey Day dusk on Surrey Day.
We can't wait to celebrate Surrey Day with you all!
