Chippenham Folk Festival COVID-19 Fighting Fund
Since the Chippenham Folk Festival 2020 festival was postponed until 2021, then 2021 normal festival being cancelled, the festival now has three years worth of running costs to cover from one year's festival income.
We are a Community Interest Company, run entirely by volunteers on a not-for-profit basis, so please help us cover these costs and avoid potential cuts to infrastructure and content, with donations to the festival, showing your support through these hard times, and keeping this festival going for present and future generations to enjoy.
