Saturday 18 September from 11am to 8.30pm. Free entry to the Wharf.
18 September 2021 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 as it gets dark. The Wharf opens at 11:00 and there’ll be lots to do all day.
What’s going on in the day time?
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. We’re hoping that the Alder Valley Brass Band and Horsham Black Dragon Morris will return to entertain us musically. 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.
There is no parking at the Wharf although drop off is available. It is 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 for car parks before you come.
