Guildford Summer Festival
Celebrating events in Guildford since 1983.
June to August 2020
We are thrilled to announce that Guildford Summer Festival will return in 2020 for the 37th year!
The first Guildford Summer Festival took place in 1983 and centred around the Guildford Pageants which used to take place in Shalford Park and were organised by the 'Pageant Master', the late David Clarke. Every year, events were organised in the Town to coincide with Festival time, and so it grew.
This years festival will be in association with Silent Pool Distillers. Silent Pool Gin is hand-crafted in the beautiful landscape of the Surrey Hills using water from the spring-fed Silent Pool and 24 of the finest botanicals. The award-winning gin is a rich and clean juniper-driven spirit with floral layers of lavender and chamomile, grounded with the subtle sweetness of local honey.
