Festival Description

Four days of folk dance, song, music and traditions in the heart of Wiltshire. Chippenham Folk Festival retains its ‘village’ atmosphere, providing three and a half days that include 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 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. There is also a full program of children's events, 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.

Festival Dates May 27 - 30, 2011
