Farnham, SurreyFarnham Castle
For company members and audiences alike ‘Guildburys at Farnham Castle’ is a delightful experience, everyone enjoying not only the show but the picnics and the quintessentially British experience of open air summer theatre in a really beautiful setting.
July 2013 will see Guildburys celebrate their 50th birthday and their 24th open air summer show at Farnham Castle, Surrey. Each year it all starts at the door to the Castle grounds. Every single item for the production is brought in through this tiny doorway to the keep, and hey presto – there’s a theatre and an enthusiastic capacity audience! The most important element at Farnham is the show itself and plays for our open air production are carefully selected to appeal to a wide audience and to ensure a great evening’s entertainment.
Well in excess of 25,000 enthralled fans have seen our shows at the castle
We achieved a 98% customer satisfaction rate in the latest audience survey which indicated that audiences come from a large surrounding area and not just from Farnham itself – some travel from a distance of 50 miles to see the show.
We attract new audience members each year and our total seating capacity for the shows is 1500.
Online booking for the show opens at the end of April, and thanks to a committed and loyal audience which grows each year, the show sells out.
The “auditorium” has a capacity of 300 people and despite being outdoors it is surprisingly intimate with good facilities which include an on site bar, picnic areas and ease of access for the disabled.
