The Celebratory Procession marks the start of an exciting programme of events to mark our 50th year in Guildford, and is 50 years to the day since the installation ceremony of the University of Surrey’s inaugural Chancellor.
Come and join us as we celebrate this special occasion in the heart of Guildford town centre.

Enjoy entertainment from some of our fantastic student societies outside Debenhams and try the ‘Spot the Stag’ treasure hunt competition taking place throughout the town.
Don’t miss our special giveaways and make sure you visit our stands outside Debenhams and the Tunsgate Arch to collect your blue and gold flag to wave during the procession.
Celebratory procession: 10:30am
Grab your blue and gold flag and cheer on our staff, students, local councillors and special guests as they process up Guildford High Street in ceremonial gowns.
The procession will start at St Mary’s Church and travel up Guildford High Street to Holy Trinity Church.
