Chippenham Folk Festival is back this Bank Holiday Weekend

The 51st Chippenham Folk Festival is back this Bank Holiday weekend and building on the great success of last year's event promises even more to see and do this year.

With over 200 artists and performers from across the UK and beyond, Chippenham will be turned into a blaze of colour, music, dance, fun and laughter. 

There will be entertainment happening in the High Street, on every town centre street corner, on Island Park alongside the river and in most pubs. 

The organisers of the event report that tickets have been selling well but a limited number are still available via their website. 

New for 2024 and in collaboration with Chippenham Comedy Club there will be a late night "COMEDY EXTRA" event at The Cause on Saturday night.

Amongst the folk legends attending will be Breabach, Tim Edey, Bruce Hamilton, The Fay Heild Trio, John Kirkpatrick, The Medlars, Brian Peters and many more.
