Now in its ninth year, the Westbury Festival (aka Westbury Music & Arts Festival) runs its main festival in September/October each year. We are a not for profit organisation which puts together a variety of events for the residents of Westbury and the surrounding areas. The Festival highlights the wealth of local talent and also the history, cultural facilities and the beautiful surrounding Wiltshire countryside.
Year on year, the Festival has been growing in the number and diversity of events but also in its reputation as a community festival with something for everyone to enjoy. Of course we couldn't do it without the help and support of the Festival Committee and our other committed helpers.
From its early beginnings when local community organisations gave grants to help start the "Music Festival", the Festival has continued to grow with the 2015 Festival including more than 50 events reaching an audience of nearly 40,000 people. The Festival has included theatre, choirs, opera, history, blues, children's events and much more.
In 2012, the Festival left the embrace of both Lions and Rotarians and became a freestanding committee and now has the potential to attract additional funding and sponsorship to help support the continuation of the Festival in the coming years. More information on funding opportunities can be found on the Sponsorship and Friends pages and we can also be found on Facebook at Westbury Music and Arts Festival and on Twitter as @WestburyFestival
