Around the world in 80 days at Guildburys Picnic Theatre 

July 13th – 16th 2022

Join the fun and enjoy the ride of your life as Guildburys Theatre Company take you ‘Around the World in 80 Days’. With 40 characters played by 9 actors this will be a feast of a journey to accompany your picnic.

‘A lot of fun. Bursting with imagination. A trip worth making’ THE STAGE.

Phileas Fogg is a London bachelor, of independent means; he is so regular in his habits that he fires a manservant for serving him a cup of tea at the wrong temperature. His ordered life is thrown aside during a card game at his club when he wagers £20,000 that a man can make it around the world in 80 days – an extraordinary amount, equivalent to £2.4 million today! He sets off that same night, with his new valet Passepartout, a former tightrope walker, in confused tow.

Evening performances at 7.45pm, Saturday matinee at 2pm. Grounds open for picnics 90 minutes before curtain-up.

Watts Gallery Artists Village 

One of the hidden treasures of Surrey is the Watts Gallery near Guildford.  Not only a beautiful gallery, but the Artists village is also a place of learning and education within beautiful grounds.  The home and creative forge of George and Mary Watts, the gallery, and the Chapel are a source of rich inspiration and testament to their creativity.  The paintings of Evelyn De Morgan are resident there.   George Watts was widely considered to be the greatest painter of the Victorian era. A portraitist, sculptor, landscape painter, and symbolist, Watts’s work embodied the most pressing themes and ideas of the time, earning him the title of England’s Michelangelo.  Catch the end of the Pre- Raphelite exhibition, Pre- Raphelite treasures, drawings, and watercolors, and enjoy the grounds and teashop one summer’s day.

WH Cox & Son – We’re Surrey’s Favourite Movers – 

WH Cox & Son is a family-run business that has been relocating people for over forty years. In that time, we’ve gained a loyal base of customers who always return to use our services. One of our proudest moments is when we receive a new client by referral – our number one goal is to provide the best service possible. 

WH Cox covers the whole of Surrey, Middlesex and we do a lot of removals from people moving from London. Because we’re situated outside of London, we’re able to offer the same level of service you’d receive from a London-based company but at much lower rates. WH Cox’s team has extensive knowledge of the areas we cover, and we plan each detail with our customers to make sure we fit around their schedule.

WH Cox & Son has earned its reputation for being Surrey’s favourite moving company by our hard work and dedication to our customers. Contact us today to discuss your relocation or storage requirements.
