Diary 2010 Charlotteville Jubilee Trust
The Spike Charlotteville Get Involved About Us


21st November

The Pranksters do Jack London

Guildford favourite amateur dramatic body joined with the Charlotteville Jubilee Trust in this charity fund raiser for Guildford Action.

This was a 'Play in a Day' and work on the production started at 10:00 for curtains up at 20:00.

A very enjoyable evening and a great way to raise more than £130 for a local charity

31st October

Spooky Spike

A really good one this year.  The Spike was fully decked out by Zoe, Neil and the team and we thought it would be nice to take a picture of her before she put any make up on.

More than 72 children and a few adults enjoyed the Spooky Spike Quiz event.

12th September

Sherlock Holmes Society

We don't usually put group visits on this site but the Sherlock Holmes Society were very special.  They had come down from London for a leisurely weekend and had included a full tour of the Spike in their itinery.  35 members in all came to enjoy the Spike experience arriving by coach.

11th September

Heritage Open Day

One of our quietest.  Blamed on the cancellation of the shuttle bus which, when we had it on divert one year, brought us over 1,000 visitors.  Also of course there are about twice as many attractions as there were 10 years ago.

6th September

Guildford Summer Festival Reception

Guildford Tourist Information office selected the Spike to celebrate the conclusion of another successful Summer Festival.  A very good turnout as this photo of Jen and Tony proves.

Guildford Summer Festival Enactment

We laid on a special enactment as part of this annual Guildford event.  Two costumed tours took place, one at 13:30 and the other at 16:30. Both were well attended.  Photos to follow hopefully.

17th June

Members Enactment

Like many of the visitors to the Spike in times past, we even made our members queue and wait for the big gate to open.  A very pleasant evening and a good opportunity for Charlotteville Jubilee Trust members to get inside the Spike and see what we get up to.  More to follow ...

6th May

General Election

The Spike was chosen again to be the local Polling Station.  More than 1900 residents used the Spike to cast their vote, Guildford MP Anne Milton was returned with an increased majority of 7,782. The turnout was 72.1% in this strongly contested seat.

10th April
