Plus it's for locals so we're anticiapting most attendees will walk there. By using the park & hall we'll be supporting them by paying hire charges & enabling people to see what can be done in the spaces. A number of local arts groups will be showcasing their work & encourage local start their own artistic pursuits #Environment is one of the wellbeing themes of the event and we will have talks and stalls given by Zero Carbon Guildford, CTK Recycling to educate about environmental measures visitors can implement straight away
