The University of Surrey’s Festival of Wonder took place on Saturday 13 May 2017, and saw visitors enjoy a wide range of fun, free and educational activities on our Stag Hill and Manor Park campuses in the heart of Guildford.
The day has been fun and it’s been rewarding to come back as an alumni and see how the university is continually evolving. That’s a really nice feeling. It’s been reminiscent.
Emily Newman, alumni
The programme of events throughout the day included presentations on everything from science and technology through to music and literature, interactive demonstrations at our Wonder Zone, interviews with celebrities and special guests, and a full twelve hours of music, dance and comedy at our beautiful lakeside stage.
The sun was shining as visitors began to arrive on campus, ready to make the most of all that the Festival had to offer, and were met with a warm welcome from friendly staff and student volunteers.
The excitement grew throughout the day as the campuses became abuzz with people, the talks and performances began, and the festivities got into full swing.
