Big Top Concerts
We are presenting 3 major concerts in our Big Top venue this year. First up is Mick Ryans latest show "A Paupers Path to Hope". This was commissioned by The Gate to Southwell last year and was hugely welcomed and received by all. At Chippenham the show will have some of the acclaimed Thoresby Colliery band to add some great music to an already skilled cast. Check out more information about this on our website.
Sunday evening we present " A Convivial Commotion" 3 Choirs in Harmony. Lingmara World Music Choir, The Andover Museum Loft Singers and The Magnificent AK47's are working together to provide a programme of songs that will, to be honest, astound you. This is an exciting concert you will not want to miss.
Finally on the Monday evening we have "Brass Monkey" celebration 30 years singing and playing together. The band will have 2 trumpet players which makes it a six piece. Glorious, inspirational and gutsy music. Looking forward to that!
All concerts are from 6.30 - 8.30 in the Big Top on Island Park. There will be limited tickets available for sale for these events soon. keep an eye on http://www.chippfolk.co.uk/ for more details
