Welcome to our regular roundup of what’s happening in Guildford this month, as always there is plenty to see and experience, with some great family events and the traditional headline acts associated with our busy town.

Let’s begin with Theatre and Shows

The month kicks off in style at the wonderful Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, with The School for Scandal with Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey the Butler from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) and a brilliant cast lighting up the stage in this ‘deliciously naughty’ and ‘delightfully silly’ production of the timeless Sheridan classic.

There’s family fun galore throughout April with a Free Family Fun Day, a performance of Zog and the Flying Doctors based on the children’s favourite by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler, and Pop up Play for Pre-Schoolers.

The month ends in great style with a run of Sleuth, starring the brilliant Todd Boyce, and Neil McDermott in the thriller made famous on screen with Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier. It’s a Tony Award winning play that really is not to be missed.

Our near neighbours, and good friends at G Live have a great line-up for April, with some wonderful stand-up comedy and tribute acts galore, as well as a few appearances from household name.

Fans of the BBC Scotland show Off the Ball will know the name Ray Bradshaw very well, he is the brilliant comedian that supported John Bishop on a recent tour, on the 6th of April, Ray brings his brand new show ‘Doppelginger’ to Guildford, catch him now before he gets massive!

And speaking of ‘massive’ stand-ups, the one and only Jimmy Carr rocks into town on the 14th of April with ‘Work in Progress’.

If you are a fan of the finest tribute acts, then you will not want to miss the ELO Show, or Taylormania starring self-confessed ‘Swiftie’, the brilliant Katy Ellis, the Billy Joel Songbook, or the astonishing talented Bootleg Beatles.

Guildford Farmer’s Market takes place on the first Tuesday of every month, including April 2nd, and it is packed with produce from local suppliers, including some of the finest food and vegetables in the UK. Guildford High Street is packed with stalls, and we highly recommend a visit.
