150th Anniversary Art & Photography Festival
at Tilford Parish Church

A remarkable display of community talent has been revealed by a major exhibition of Art & Photography at All Saints, Tilford, Church over the last two weekends of September 2017.

All Saints Church

A notable example of Victorian architecture, All Saints Church was consecrated on 10th July 1867 and has served as a spiritual focus of the community ever since.  Standing just above the picturesque village green, it has been the home of the renowned Tilford Bach Festival for 65 years.

The broad-ranging show was open to the public over the two weekends, 23rd/24th Sept and 30th Sept/1st October,.

Art Festival 1

The display featured the work of artists and photographers of all ages and abilities - from budding amateurs to experienced professionals and delighted visitors.

The festival was open to the public free of charge – donations were invited - with refreshments, including tea, coffee and delicious home-made cakes served.

The Art Festival is part of the year-long celebrations of the 150th birthday of Tilford Parish Church.

Art Festival 2

Following an organ recital, a Flower Festival, and a Village Lunch earlier in the year, the festivities continue with a visit from the Bishop of Guildford to All Saints Patronal Festival on Sunday 29th October, a Christmas Oratorio presented by Tilford Bach Society on Saturday 18th November and a Christmas Tree Festival on Saturday 9th December.

The flower festival in June filled the church with a delightful medley of scents and colours.  It attracted visitors from near and far, who generously donated some £500 towards the upkeep of this noted Victorian church.
