'A unique and distinctive event of national importance. It features the very best in English traditional music and dance with an emphasis on participation and education. Run entirely by volunteers, it has minimal and very local sponsorship; it is fiercely independent and entirely in control of its artistic programme ... It is a "200+ events, make up your own festival in a variety of venues in a small, welcoming, market town" festival. Just like English traditional music and dance it is modest, unassuming, inclusive, fun and ultimately rewarding.' Held Spring Bank Holiday Weekend.

‘A warm welcome awaits all singers at Calne Choral Society. We are a friendly bunch! We work towards three performances a year ... Whatever your experience and skill level, we are always looking for new singers for all voice parts, soprano, alto, tenor and bass. There is no audition, unless you need help finding a voice part. Each voice part has a rep who will welcome you, introduce you to the music director ... and can even pair you up with someone experienced who can offer assistance throughout rehearsals. Music will be provided and all we ask is that you hand it back at each rehearsal until you decide to join us as a member. You can stay for three rehearsals before you decide to join.’

'A dynamic amateur orchestra which aims to offer its members a challenging and fun environment in which to explore a variety of music, ranging from light music and film works through to classical pieces, symphonies and concertos ... We are proud of our reputation as a welcoming and friendly orchestra. The orchestra is developing and moving forward with each concert and our range of works includes challenging pieces which aim to stretch us musically. We recommend that grade 5 is a suitable minimum standard for string players looking to join the orchestra - although players at a higher standard than this will also find themselves challenged and stretched.'
