We are really pleased to announce that this year's 32 performances resulted in a whopping £2001.01 plus another donation yet to be received.. We'd like to thank Richard, John, Bob, Andy, Pete, Mick and Eric for their skilled playing, all our bemused and appreciative audiences and in particular all those who popped their small (and sometimes large) change into the hat. Thanks all and see you next year? Photos coming soon

Well that was a day and a half in Mumming terms. 2 performances in the town and one in the Brewery. Gone for a short lie down and a bite to eat and then out to 8 shows in Devizes pubs in total. Takings for charity is looking brilliant this year. Thanks to all that are supporting us. 4 more to do then we finish up back in our local at Potterne. Whew !

Chippenham Folk Festival 2017 Official Web Site. Ticket Prices. Friday 26th - Monday 29th May 2017

A few years ago I was told that “the problem with Chippenham is that it’s so dance oriented”. In fact I have been told that so many times I was beginning to believe it.
When we book artists to appear at the festival on the song and concert side I get swayed by this, and a good few other things and only get to realise what an amazing line up we have once I start the actual event planning.
And I am simply blown away!
Ok we have HOME SERVICE with the new man in place , JOHN K...IRKPATRICK, JAMES FAGAN & NANCY KERR, possibly the most loved act in the country at the moment, A revival of the wonderful Crows now under the great new name CROW5, CLOUDSTREET as a 3 piece from OZ, PETE COE , that veteran but still amazingly youthful at 70+, CHRIS SHERBURN & DENNY BARTLEY with Emily Sanders, the ridiculously brilliant KEITH DONNELLY and now, would you believe it, COOPE BOYES AND SIMPSON in the last gig of their farewell tour!
Add to that Brian Peters, Dave & Anni, 2 shanty crews, Lynne Heraud & Pat Turner, The wonderful Sound Tradition, Two Coats Colder, The Georgia Lewis Trio, Nanne & Ankie from Friesland, Moira and Carolyn and a whole shed load more.
Predominantly a dance festival at Chippenham??? I should flipping well say not!
More info soon
