About The Cause

The Cause is a multi-purpose Music and Arts venue in Chippenham, Wiltshire. We host a variety of weekly activities including life drawing, pilates, 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 multi media streaming, a kitchen and fully licensed bar (available at concerts and some events) and is wheelchair accessible.
