Family Festival

Transparent White

Welcome to the Chester and Chppenham Family Festival

At Chester Folk Festival children gather in a circus tent for fun, games and circus skills. At Chippenham Folk Festival a plywood castle appears, home to the family area of the festival with a programme including; song, dance, story, and traditional arts from circus skills to conjuring creations from scrap. The area aims to capture the imagination of our youngest visitors. We also welcome Primary schools from around our local area to a day of traditional dance and song around our festival site.

This year our joint festival welcomes families and schools from both Chippenham and Chester. The castle or circus tent may not be visible but we wanted to create the same opportunities online. So welcome to our virtual Family and Schools Festival, Come in, have a dance, have a sing, and listen to a story.....
