The Chippenham Folk Festival's inaugural year was in 1972, taking place in a small village Lacock. Due to the event's success, the festival was relocated to Chippenham town.
The festival features some of the best traditional English music, dance, song and folk activities. It also features a day (Festival Friday) exclusively for local school children to be given tuition in song, dance, playing instruments and story-telling.
