CHIPPING SODBURY FESTIVAL
Friday 9th June to Sunday 18th June 2017
The 2016 Chipping Sodbury Annual Festival was the 31st and the most successful to date.
Following the AGM of the Festival Committee on 19th September plans are in hand to continue with the events for 2017.
The 2017 Festival dates are Friday 9th June to Sunday 18th June and the chosen theme for the year will be “Americana”. We believe this title will lend itself to the music for numerous concerts, the Schools Art Exhibition, the Shop Window Dressing competition and of course may inspire some creativity for the Street Fair and Carnival on Saturday 17th June.
2016 Chairman, Jim Elsworth, will be taking a bit of a back seat next year, but the strong team- with some new blood- will carry the event forward. Kate Cox will carry the mantle of Chairperson and Nik Rugg continues as Treasurer. New officers are Stephanie Netherton as Hon. Secretary and Nicky Gideon as Minute Secretary.
Committee members continue come from various groups and one or two new volunteers have come forward.
All bodes well for an even stronger Festival next in 2017.
This web site will be updated as events are confirmed, but expect to see some of the old favourites back, plus some new exciting events through the 10 days.
