Welcome to the Guildford Summer Festival 2019 It is a real pleasure to bring you the 2019 events programme for Guildford Summer Festival. As always it is packed with so many things to do, it will keep you busy all summer long. Guildford Summer Festival would not be the same without the popular events which include the Craft Market in the High Street, the Guildford Lions Raft Race on the River Wey, quality theatre in several outdoor locations; and of course the Cricket Festival and Beer Festival. Get your pens at the ready to mark off which events you don’t want to miss! There is everything from cycling on the Hogs Back, theatre, art exhibitions, a beach, beer, cricket, jousting, miniature railway, lots of cheese, and even more chilli to raft building, raft sailing (and possibly raft sinking!), crafts to buy, free Sunday afternoon concerts, choral music, films, shopping, gardening, animals, outdoor theatre, indoor performances and so much more. There are events for children and some just for the grown-ups; one off events, and events you can revisit time and time again. This just wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of all the event organisers, sponsors and contributors, which makes the Guildford Summer Festival the huge success that it is and I am sure you will join me in thanking them all. You will find even more by going to the website: www.guildfordsummerfestival.co.uk
