Chobham Festival began in 1993 and has brought wonderful and diverse music, art, theatre and cultural events and glorious flower festivals to Chobham to delight and entertain the village. The event is organised by a team of volunteers. If you could help in anyway: with publicity, catering, stewarding, setting up chairs and tables, running the bar at various events or simply contributing ideas, do get in touch – chobhamfestivalnews@outlook.com.

St Lawrence Church

The Parish Church of St Lawrence is at the heart of the village and of the festival, hosting the classical concerts and many other events. It is the oldest and one of the most beautiful buildings in the borough of Surrey Heath and also the borough’s only Grade 1 listed building.
The fine music that the festival brings to Chobham every year is a marvellous way to enjoy the beauty of this historic place.

Other venues

Other venues have included Chobham Village Hall, Chobham Club, St Lawrence School, the old Flexlands Prep School, Pasha Coffee Shop and Gordon’s School at West End. In 2018, we will be holding events at two new festival venues, St Saviour Church at Valley End and Chobham Rugby Club while The Red Lion pub is holding a fringe music event.

That’s what you call being inclusive!
