About The Cause

The Cause is a multi-purpose Music and Arts venue in Chippenham, Wiltshire. We host a variety of weekly activities including dance, yoga, choirs, band rehearsals, meetings, functions and workshops. The venue is privately funded and its aim is to support Music, Art and community activities, at the same time sustaining and conserving the historic buildings for the enjoyment of future generations.

The Cause has a range of facilities, including a kitchen and fully licensed bar (available at concerts and some events) and is wheelchair accessible with a toilet for disabled.

The Cause – Covid-19

Pleased to say we are now open for some small private classes and groups and hope to start more classes and events over the next few months as restrictions are relaxed.

There are many safety procedures in place and anyone attending a class must first check with the leader on the latest requirements. Pre-booking is required and contact details will be retained for 21 days to comply with test and trace regulations.

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back!

Please give Fred a call on  01249 446893 if we can help or for a chat. We can also be contacted by email: fred@thecausevenue.com and Facebook www.facebook.com/thecausevenue/
