Westbury Town Council has an active events calendar throughout the year with a focus on community and family friendly things to do. These range from the Inflatable fun dayz and the bi-annual music event during the summer, through to the Remembrance Day Parade in November and the very popular Christmas event at the end of November/beginning of December.

The council has also had involvement with community partners in other events throughout the year such the World War II commemorative events over the past four years and the annual Westbury Festival which runs for two weeks in late summer.

This list isn’t exhaustive, of course, as our events programme is continually changing and expanding.

We will advertise all events through social media and our quarterly newsletter and on the Town Calendar.
