The Neeld

The Neeld has been at the heart of Chippenham for centuries – as its Corn Exchange and cheese hall, even a wartime hospital, then a community hall. Now it begins its latest life as an exciting new community and arts centre bringing great professional shows and local groups’ activities and projects.

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.
