Guildford Lions Charity Torchlight Procession and Fireworks Display


Guildford Lions Club are pleased to confirm that we will putting on our annual charity torchlight procession and Fireworks display again this year but with a number of important changes which are

The procession and display will take place on Saturday November 4th not the traditional 5th

For crowd safety reasons, the following roads will be closed between 18:50 and 21:00

London Road between the A25 roundabout and the York Road/Waterden Road

Nightingale Road

Lido Road

Traffic diversions will be in place

Resident only access plus disabled parking access to the High School on London Road will be allowed but strictly controlled by our traffic management company

  Again for crowd safety reasons we ask that wherever possible people do not bring rucksacks or large bags into the Park although we do appreciate families with children will need such bags. Random bag searches will be in place

  Free car parking will be available at Allianz Insurance Plc on Ladymead GU1 1DB and Guildford College on Stoke Road GU1 1EZ. Disabled parking will be available at Guildford High School, London GU1 1SJ

We believe holding the display and procession on a Saturday is more family friendly and again with families in mind we are maintaining the earlier start times we introduced  last year
