    This is wonderful news for Guildford. The economic impact of events like Pride in Surrey is considerable, with estimates in the region of £300,000, thanks to increased spend in local shops, hotels and eating places.

    Well done Guildford Borough Council for attracting Pride in Surrey to the town, it’s great to see events like Pride, and Guilfest coming to Stoke Park.
