We are thrilled to announce that the 2019 36th Guildford Summer Festival is 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. Director Ian McCulloch commented: "We are delighted to supporting such a great event in the community .

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 'Pageant Master' the late David Clarke. Every year, events were organised in the Town to coincide with Festival time, and so it grew.

The Guildford Summer Festival brochure for 2019 is almost ready to go to the printers - email us very quickly if you want to be included and we will try to squeeze you in if its not too late
