About Chobham Festival

Chobham Festival brings diverse music, art, theatre and cultural events and glorious flower festivals to delight, entertain and enrich the community life of our Surrey village.

We are a not-for-profit group seeking to make events as accessible and affordable for as many people of all ages as possible.

We also make a donation each year to our beautiful parish church, which hosts many of our events, and from time to time, have been able to support additional projects.
