Well hello Mr Red, long time no see. Long time no Arle Court may have a bearing on that.

But I'm going (as a steward) and I'll look out for you. Please try not to be inconspicuous so I can easily spot you in the crowd.

It will be sunny this year because I have bought a new plastic mac with Chippenham in mind.

My regards to your good lady as well.

Enid & I will be there, as ever.

We don't have Breton dancers for the displays this year but do have a Breton band (Er Lann Eur) playing for a Fest Deiz (daytime Fest Noz - Breton dance).

We will have an "initiaion de danse" to explain and demonstrate the dances for those who are not sure what it might involve.

It's at the Constitutional Hall on Sunday 4.30 - 6.30. Hope to see some of you there.

Can someone book good weather for this year, please.

A bientot

Yes we'll be there.
Mr Red - that page wasn't 'Dance' that was 'Ceilidh'. (I enjoy a good ceilidh, but want to go to lots of the events they classify as 'dance', as well as some sessions and singing so I won't have the stamina for ceilidh, even if there was time to fit it in.)

At my age I need my sleep you know.

The website has the programme on it, but it stops at Monday teatime. Surely not, we've booked our B&B for Monday night so that we can stay to the end.

Note the singers sessions hosted by The Admiral are in the Black Horse.

Mo
Ah - never having danced Morris & to encompass barn dances I usually refer to ceilidhs etc collectively as "dance" - note to self - for keen ceilidhnauts never use generics.

Julian
And one to add to my list - Fest Deiz - if feet hold up I will be there. Maybe in the Barn at the Old Road Tavern, Sun.

We may be on the same shift in comms - otherwise you will spot me anyway.

Well, I dare say Morris is OK too if that's your thing but I will be doing 'proper dance'. The sort of dance that makes Chippenham different from so many other festivals. The stuff that's in the Studio Hall and the College and upstairs in the Town Hall. English (Playford style) and American (squares and contras). And maybe a bit of Irish Set dancing.

Not that I'm 'having a go at' people who enjoy the other sorts. I've had a go at all sorts in my time.
That's the beauty of Chippenham. There is something for everyone (music, song, display and dance). And there are enough experts there that you can join in at a higher level than at your usual club. And improve and learn something new.

" . . at the black Horse . . " sounds a bit like at the pub in Towersey - is it "of site" and available to the passing trade without the time to justify a ticket? (All right, I know, cheapskate - but times is 'ard!)

The Black Horse is off-site on the road between the station and the town centre. There are lots of free events at Chippenham during the day and a few sessions in pubs in the evening. Try the Old Road Tavern or the New Inn (both close to the station and virtually next door to each other). Are there other evening sessions I don't know about?

With three sessions in the Old Road Tavern - you want more choice? Unless there is something in the Rose & Crown (unlikely) all the evening sessions will be in the Old Road.


Black Horse is between the River and the High St viaduct. And you can see it from both points.

Many thanks to the people who came to sing (and listen) in my Cause Hall song sessions on Saturday afternoon and yesterday. And a huge thank you to Bob, Gill and the rest of the Committee for putting it all together. As GRex says, roll on next year!

Glorious to see the town centre, bathed in sunshine and packed all weekend with people enjoying the sights and sounds of the festival. This was a really happy one, with everyone free to enjoy themselves undistracted by the weather ... Lots of highlights for me - being caught up in some almighty choruses in the singing sessions (sorry I missed yours, Kitty - stewarding duties); also hearing old favourites and discovering new ones, every day of the festival.

I'd say thanks to everybody who came and contributed to the spirit of the event.   And of course Bob and Gill and the Committee - I hope all their efforts were fully rewarded by the success of this year's festival.

Here's to next year!

My first Chippenham, and what a glorious weekend!

Good weather, great singing, lots of energy (how do those dancers do it in the heat?) and even a few tears (Blissful Tom, you were responsible - THAT song always gets me).

And the final concert - just a bit emotional to see Tom Tom's farewell.

So glad I was able to be part of the weekend. Thanks Bob and Gill and all the organisers for making it possible.

Looking forward to next year.
