May events: Celebrate spring at the Chippenham Folk Festival

Chippenham, Wiltshire

Head to the Cotswolds to enjoy more than 200 bands, musicians and dance acts at Chippenham's four-day Folk Festival.

The Chippenham Folk Festival celebrates everything that is great about the history and customs of traditional folk music in England. With concerts, storytelling, dance workshops and displays of many different dancing styles from across the country, there's plenty to see and do across the festival's four days. See morris dancers, may pole dancing, live music and (if you're feeling brave) take part in a ceilidh.

Make time to explore the quaint shops, pubs and restaurants of Chippenham, or venture into the nearby Cotswolds for a afternoon ramble.

This year's festival takes place from 24-27 May; most events are free, but others will need to be booked in advance via the website.
