Blooming Picnic
In the Castle Grounds

Well what a fantastic event that was!

After 2 years absence, the 2022 Picnic in the Castle Grounds celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee  was a great success and we think the very best yet!

We would like to thank everyone who cam along and enjoyed the afternoon.  The weather was almost kind to us.  We hope you enjoyed the tea and fantastic cakes, the superb music and maybe even had a go at bowls or enjoyed a cheeky Pimm's.  You helped to make the afternoon truly fantastic.

We must give some more thank you's - starting with the fantastic Guildford Fringe Festival who provided a superb afternoon of entertainment that was toe-tappingly-brilliant from Rock Choir to the very end..  All that remains is for you to pop along to the Fringe Website to take a look at the wonderful range of events they have lined up for July and get booking your tickets. 

A big thank you also goes to the Castle Green Bowls Club whose members baked all those delicious cakes and kept us all topped up with tea and coffee throughout the afternoon.  They also manned the bowling green so you could all have a go! Do visit their website as they have several open days planned when you can have a serious go at bowling.

Thank you to The Keep Pub - their Pimm's Tent was so popular they sold out! They certainly helped the afternoon go with a swing!  Do pay them a visit when you are next in town - they have the best selection of Gins in Guildford!

Our very grateful thanks go to our sponsors Experience Guildford and Tunsgate Quarter.  It would have been impossible to put on the event without their sponsorship - and special thanks to Experience Guildford for the 'thrones'

We were so delighted to have so many fantastic stall holders this year and hope you had a chance to visit them and take part in the various activities on offer.  

So put the date in your diaries of Saturday 3 June 2023 - for our next Blooming Picnic!

Here are some of our photos of the day - we'd love to see yours on social media so please tag us and use #BloomingPicnic so we can share in the fun you all had.
