Woking Borough Council’s successful Celebrate Woking programme of events has made a welcome return for the third year running. This year we have delivered a range of interactive, free events for visitors and residents alike. Kicking off this year’s calendar of events was the inaugural Surrey Half Marathon and annual Sport Relief events, which both raised lots of money for worthy local causes.
The summer months saw a flurry of activity including: Tour Series, which incorporated a range including community cycle races, followed by the fast and furious professional cycle races. Party in the Park welcomed an extravaganza of dance, music and sport to Woking Park.
And for the second year running, the Prudential RideLondon raced through Byfleet, West Byfleet and Pyrford, and it was supported by a range of community events, Celebrate Pyrford and West Byfleet LI:VE. Adding some flavour to the Borough, the hugely successful Woking Food and Drink Festival attracted in excess of 60,000 visitors to the town centre.
This year also marked the start of the Borough’s important World War One Centenary Commemoration events, which are set to continue into 2015.
There are still many events taking place around the Borough. Check out our event calendar or sign up to our e-news alerts for more details.
