A Great man and supporter of the festival - Gone to the great singaround in the sky!

Farewell Phil

It's been good to know you!
Our ex chief Steward, Festival Supporter, Member of the Festival Executive committee and good friend Phil Seldon has tragically passed from us.
This will leave a big hole in the festival team that will be hard to replace.

Phil and his wife Dee have been supporting the festival for many years and has been the happy smiling face that many of could rely on to cheer us up at times of difficulty.
His honest and unbiased approach to supporting and promoting Folk music in Chippenham and Wiltshire has been wonderful as was his major part in the re-enactment groups for the Battle of Chippenham (pic above).

He amassed many friends in the area over the years and testament to this can be seen in the many facebook comments about him

So, Fare thee well Phil. You have been an inspiration to all and we send our love to Dee and your extended family. You will not be forgotten
