About the Big Balloon Build

There will be food and fun for the whole family. You can tell Santa all your holiday wishes or watch a performance by Christmas Carolers. More attractions are still being added so keep checking the website for all the exciting things parents and kids will enjoy.

Only popping up for one weekend, attendees can walk through the build starting Friday 15th December until Sunday 17th December. Tickets are limited each day and you won’t want to miss this immersive adventure!

Dedicated to creating magical and immersive balloon experiences, every Big Balloon Build is unique, offering an amazing opportunity to make a difference through the joy of balloons. All proceeds from this event will stay local benefiting Challengers and other charities in the Surrey/Guildford area.

This international event is being brought to the Surrey area due to the amazing groundwork of local balloon professional Amy Brown, owner of Peanut Balloons. Connect with Amy at
