Wey River Festival : River Wey Navigation

River Wey Navigation, Dapdune Wharf

After last year’s success we will be holding our next Wey River festival again at Dapdune Wharf in the heart of Guildford. There will be plenty of moorings available on the towpath side of the river both up and down stream. Facilities will be available at Dapdune Wharf and the railway bridge offers easy access to moorings and is well lit at night. We will be offering a 20% discount on visitor licences for visiting boats coming to the festival. Stalls and activities will be available for all the family at the Wharf on Saturday, including demonstrations form the Surrey Wood Turners and ’have a go’ sessions with the Black Dragon Morris dancers and Guildford archery club, naming just a few. The Croydon Steel Orchestra will be leading the illuminated procession from Millmead lock to Dapdune on Saturday around dusk. A wonderful spectacle not to be missed.
