Summer 2016

Welcome to Woking-on-Sea

From the sunny shores of the south-coast to the flat sands of Woking-on-sea you are guaranteed to have your very own taste of beach life this year - Woking-on-sea? Yes, that’s right, this year throughout August, Market Walk will be bringing some summer seaside fun to Woking town centre!

Market Walk will be transformed into a traditional British beach resort offering classic past-time activities such as all-time-favourite Punch and Judy, funny photo board cut-outs and the chance to build your very own sand castle.

Kick back, relax and lap up the sun in their gigantic deckchair. The deckchair will be on display throughout August and can be used by children and adults of all ages - a great photo opportunity, which of course can be framed. Don’t forget to tag @WokingMarket to be in with the chance of winning prizes!!! For another hilarious photo opportunity, hop behind the funny photo board and snap away to create those special summer memories.

“It’s behind you!” Professor Glyn Edwards will make a special appearance at the Market every Saturday throughout August at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm, bringing you four classic Punch and Judy shows. Glyn has been a professional Punch and Judy performer for over fifty years taking his show to Russia, America, Japan and of course all over the UK!

To top it all off, as well as being able to purchase scrumptious street food from permanent traders, there will be a summer Market held along Mercia Walk where you will be able to buy a range of local produce ranging from cheese, bread, sauces, pickles, meats, fruit juices and more. Perfect for summer picnics!
