The Neeld

To our valued customers

The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in a very difficult time for the and Neeld Community & Arts Centre and Town Hall, we are very sad that we have not been able to bring you our usual programme of shows and events.

Theatre shows and events
The safety of our customers and staff is of paramount importance, and to follow Government guidance on safe distancing, we feel it would be in the best interest of everyone if we remain closed for performances and events until January 2021.

Most shows have been rescheduled to a future date and we know many of you already have your tickets.

We have been busy planning an exciting programme for 2021 and we can’t wait to see you all back enjoying the entertainment at the Neeld once again. Details will be shown on our website and remember to follow us on Facebook @neeldcommunityandarts and on Twitter@NeeldArts.

Meetings and Private Functions

We are delighted that our venue is able to offer hire spaces for business meetings, up to a maximum of 30 people, where strict safe social distancing measures will be in place, for further details please contact our venues team venuehire@chippenham.gov.uk, 01249 446699.

We are unable to take new bookings for hire of our venue spaces for events that will take place before 1st January 2021.

For customers who have an existing booking for hire space at the Town Hall or Neeld your bookings are still in place and our Venues Team will contact you shortly. It may be possible to host some events by following Government guidelines if we can adhere to strict Covid-19 safe practices, this will vary depending on the type of event and number of people attending.

 

We would like to thank our customers for their valued support and hope to see you all again soon.

 

The recent refurbishment and improvement project, by Chippenham Town Council, has transformed this beautiful Victorian venue with comfortable tiered seating, a brand new bar area and top quality sound and light equipment. The refurbishment scheme has also seen the front of house area of the adjoining Town Hall improved to provide a multi-purpose customer services and venue lobby/box office.

The artistic programming offers high quality, bold and challenging shows for all ages – an exciting new entertainment offer for Chippenham while ensuring ticket prices are affordable and accessible.

 

The venue can also be hired. It is an extremely flexible space which makes it perfect to host a great variety of events and performances from concerts, theatre plays to private functions and community shows.

Here at the Neeld Community and Arts Centre, we are a dedicated and enthusiastic team always ready to help you. Whether you’d like to know more about our show, enquire about booking tickets or hiring our venue, do get in touch.
