About the venue

The Guildhall on Guildford High Street is where the Mayor and Corporation of Guildford met to regulate the commerce of the Borough, and where the various Courts of Law sat in judgement. The hall itself is Elizabethan, but very probably stands on the site of the medieval Guildhall which is known to have existed in the 1300s. It was extended at the north end in 1589, on the occasion of one of Elizabeth I's visits to the town and her Coat of Arms in stained glass was inserted in the window above the Judge's Bench. In 1683 the Guildhall was refurbished with the insertion of a Council Chamber at first floor level. This had a balcony over the street and a bell turret above. The story is told of a London Clock maker, named John Aylward, who presented the projecting clock to the Corporation in return for freedom to trade in the Borough.
