Music & Spoken Word
Chippenham Folk Festival is now in its 48th
successful year. Although it has seen many
changes since its beginnings in Lacock all
those years ago, it still retains its 'village'
atmosphere, providing three and a half days
packed with song, dance, workshops and
dance displays. Over 200 events take place
within the town centre, turning the whole
town into a giant party. The main ceilidh and
concert events take place in venues close to
the beautiful park alongside the river, while
practically every pub and venue in the town is
used for a vast range of sessions, workshops
and smaller concerts and dances.
The childrens have their own festival based
on Island Park a large craft marquee,
catering facilities and an open air arena in the
park. The High Street and historic Market
Square are both pedestrianised, and are
used throughout the weekend for busking,
street theatre and processions. A huge street
fair also takes place on the Monday.
