The Bush Hotel

All are welcome to this traditional black tie dinner that dates back more than 400 years.

There will be a six-course meals, plus a pre-dinner drink and wine with the meal. Tickets cost £82 per head.

Headline speakers include Jeremy Hunt MP, the former Bishop of St Albans The Rt Revd Chris Herbert, the Bishop of Guildford.

The first Farnham Venison Dinner took place in 1605, and was held in an attempt by the Bailiffs and Burgesses to stop townsfolk from poaching deer from Farnham Park.

In keeping with tradition the chef, accompanied by a piper, will bring the venison into the dining room. The venison will be presented to the Mayor of Farnham, who will carve the first slice.
