Feeling festive: Christmas events to take place in Surrey

Christmas this year will be like no other. Many yearly events people look forward to have had to shut their doors. Some Covid-19 safe events that are able to open have their tickets now up for sale.

The government’s advice is also there for customers to ensure their safety. Like many things at the moment, these tickets will have to be bought in advance, as there is limited availability as capacity is smaller this year. 

Amid the pandemic, certain festivities are still going ahead. In and around Surrey, outdoor events are able to open, with social distancing practices in place. 

Such events include:
