Wey River Festival at Dapdune Wharf in Guildford

It's coming... 22 September brings the Wey River Festival back to Dapdune Wharf in Guildford - with a variety of stands, food, craft activities and of course, the fantastic illuminated pageant. The Wharf opens at 11:00 and there'll be lots to do all day.

What's going on in the day time?

Fingers crossed that the sun shines on 22 September as we welcome boaters and visitors alike to celebrate everything that is great about the river.  There'll be plenty to do, such as willow weaving, a pirate boot camp, Surrey Wood Turners and plenty of crafts and children's activities.  Our boat trips will be running all day and there'll be lots of foodie stalls, with local jam and honey as well as things to eat.  Entry is free.

And in the evening?

The highlight of the whole day is the illuminated pageant at dusk, with boats travelling from the centre of Guildford to Dapdune Wharf, brilliantly lit up with fairy lights and serenaded by the Croydon Steel Orchestra as they arrive at Dapdune.  

Saturday 22 September from 11am to 9.30pm.  Free entry to the Wharf.


We'd like to warn you that parking is very limited at the Wharf, and its advisable to park in one of the many car parks in Guildford and come down to the Wharf on foot. You can have a look here before you come.
