OFFICIAL: 'The Village Guildford' set to open this June

Published at 6:01am 10th May 2017. (Updated at 7:17am 10th May 2017)

It has been revealed that brand new shopping site 'The Village Guildford' is set to open this June in the town centre.

It will be located between Commercial Road and Woodbridge Road - just a two minute walk from the High Street.

Feedback from the original pop up village last December was that potential tenants wanted greater certainty about the length of time that the venue would operate for.

Visitors also wanted a different experience.

The Borough Council has now created an events programme that extends across the summer months and beyond. 

The Council says The Village, Guildford is no longer a ‘pop-up’ site but offers a longer-term opportunity with a flexible, different space for retailers, traders and entertainment.

The site will also feature a stage area, an open public space and seating.

It will be open each week from Wednesday through to Sunday until December.

A mixture of food concessions serving street food, retail outlets, toilets and a licensed bar will also be available.

The Village opens on Saturday, June 10, with a street parade which starts in the High Street at 10.30am before making its way to the Village by 11am.

Eagle Radio will be there - we will be broadcasting the launch live from the site.

Egbert the Eagle will also be joining in  - along with the Eagle Radio Love Crew.

The parade will also include a giant puppet called ‘Eartha’ Queen of the earth, characters from ‘Alice through the Looking Glass’ and ‘The Wizard of Oz.’

Lead Councillor for Economic Development, Tourism and Climate Change, Cllr David Bilbe says: “We want to provide residents and visitors with a new and unique venue in which to shop, eat and enjoy themselves.

‘‘It continues to be important that we are able to provide an opportunity for local business and new start-ups to develop and grow.

"This type of new offering takes time to establish and we have improved the Village to make better use of this dynamic space ahead of the proposed redevelopment of lower North Street.”
