Chippenham Folk Festival will be online this year from May 28th – 31st but some children’s events have been launched early. There are four sections of videos and activities which reflect the usual festival events; song and music, dance, story and creative arts. The material is aimed at primary-aged children with some for nursery age.
“We have made as much content as possible available now so that children and families facing Easter break under continuing restrictions can create some festival joy to living rooms over the holidays,” said Cat Murphy of the Festival.
The content will then remain live until the end of May half term for schools and families to access as either in-class or at-home activity.
“We were keen to go live in time for the Easter holiday, however, we will be adding content, so please check back regularly.”
This year’s online festival has been put together in co-operation with Chester Folk Festival and information can be found at www.chesterandchippenham.com . Details of the family events and tickets can be found there too.
