Firefly @ The Keystone, Guildford

It was a very welcomed surprise to be nominated. Our mission statement must be ringing true with our customers. It is ‘set your senses alight!’ and we do this through our craft beers, full flavoured chargrill menu and the arts. Being Guildford Fringe Festival HQ helps, with an eclectic mix of artists and patrons passing through our doors. This creates an exciting buzz around the place, with contrasting events from unsigned music to poetry or Café Scientific to jazz. Our offering is brought together by our brilliant staff, who are all creative souls and make our venue so welcoming.

G Live, Guildford

I’m thrilled that G Live has been nominated and would like to thank Surrey Life readers and our customers for voting for us. The nomination recognises the fantastic reputation G Live has for staging diverse shows and events. Our food and drink offering compliments the programme wonderfully, from a quick coffee and bite to eat in the G Live café, to a classic bistro dish in The Mezzanine Restaurant before a show. We aim to innovate, and the introduction of The Hog’s Back Bar, serving local ales and cider from Tongham’s Hogs Back Brewery is unique for a theatre venue.

The Red Lion, Bletchingley

We are delighted to be nominated for Entertainment Venue of the year, at the Red Lion, and we are proud to uphold the best quality and professionalism of our regular acts, tributes and bands. Our team always offer the highest level of service with excellent menus to accompany the events. Monthly quiz, charity nights and food events are always a popular choice. A big thank you to all our guests who come along and support our events and who have voted for us in this prestigious award.
