About The Cause

The Cause is a multi-purpose Music and Arts venue in Chippenham, Wiltshire. We host a variety of activities: some weekly, some sporadically – including concerts, dance, yoga, world music choir, band and theatre 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. Our versatile spaces provide a platform for many different types of event, the details of which all exist on our Venue page.

Upcoming Events – September ’16


On Monday September 12th, English Buddhist Monk Gen Kelsang Chonden will be returning to deliver a free talk about Love, Desire and Attachment. This event will take place upstairs in The Cause and promises a deep and respectful chat about the topics. No need to book, just turn up for a 7pm start.

The resident choirs of The Cause join forces for a charity show at Chippenham Town Hall, Friday 23rd September


This promises to be a special evening that will see us all congregate at the Chippenham Town Hall for an evening of singing and inspiration. Tickets are available in advance from www.neeld.co.uk.
