What a line up this year!. This will be Bob & Gill's last line up that they have planned, something they started to do way back in 1989! We are using their retirement to have a fabulous line up and one heck of a week-end long party.
We would also like to welcome the wonderful mr John Kirkpatrick who has accepted our request for him to be the festival’s patron
have a look at some of the guests we have below and check in regularly for updates and further updates.
What did folks used to say 'be there or be square'
Every castle in history is a busy jumble of guilds, towers and halls. The Chippenham Folk Festival Family Castle is no different. Our castle walls may be ply wood and our towers and hall marquees, but we have everything from a blacksmiths workshop to stables.
Open from 9:30 to 5 the fun doesn’t even stop for lunch!! Don’t forget to bring a picnic, or check out the stalls around Island Park to enjoy with our lunch time shows.
Although the event is not attendable by the general public, it is a vital and exciting part of the festival, and the attending children gain a great deal from the experience.
