Celebrate Woking is a programme run by Woking Borough Council to highlight and support the Borough's best cultural attractions. 

The borough of Woking has a rich heritage, great places and inspiring spaces to visit and enjoy, such as The Shah Jahan Mosque, The Lightbox, Surrey History Centre, The Muslim Peace Garden, Brookwood Cemetery, Basingstoke Canal, The Living Planet Centre, New Victoria Theatre, the brand new Nova Cinema, The Rhoda McGaw Theatre, Woking Leisure Centre and many others.

Our coronavirus response

While we aspire to ‘business as usual’, the reality is that it cannot be. In light of Government advice, this year’s Celebrate Woking programme of events has been cancelled and activities which use Council resources or facilities will not be programmed or permitted during 2020. The only event that remains scheduled is Remembrance Sunday on 8 November 2020.

Organisations impacted by this decision have been made aware, and Celebrate Woking will continue to highlight the Borough's cultural and historic assets, parks and open spaces. There is so much to see and do in our wonderful Borough to keep you entertained.

To date, our popular calendar of events has featured two flagship events - Party in the Park and the multi award-winning Woking Food and Drink Festival - as well as a number of other cultural events, including Chinese New Year, Surrey Half Marathon, Pride in Surrey, Woking Drama Festival, Woking Music Festival, Woking Literary Festival, Diwali, Fireworks, Remembrance Sunday and the Woking Shopping Christmas Lights Switch On. We hope that some of these events can safely return to the Borough in the future.
