Update 4th May 2021

Preparation is underway for the Town Council to start planning for the inaugural Wiltshire Chilli Fest 2021! 

Things will heat up on Saturday 25th September 2021, when all things Chilli will come to Westbury High Street, with live bands, chilli eating competitions and much much more. Did we mention there’s going to be EXTRA CHEESE? That’s right, it’s going to be singalong classics and nostalgia central as we end the summer with a bang.  

After the Chilli Fest, the time for a good old Christmas celebration will be upon us. Having missed last years we can’t wait to get the whole town together again to celebrate Christmas in Westbury. The event will be revamped and revitalised as we bring the party back outside to the town’s litup streets.  

If restrictions allow, Westbury Town Council will also look to host some smaller events through the summer. But right now, like everyone else, we are remaining cautiously optimistic while keeping in mind we still have to prioritise the health and wellbeing of everyone

The White Horse Soapbox Derby will sadly not take place on 22nd May 2021. However, it is our intention if circumstances allow, to hold this event in 2022. More information will be available nearer the time.

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.
