Burt’s Fest – rescheduled

Burt’s Fest has been rescheduled for Sat 19 August due to poor weather on 5 August.

Sat 19 August

Skate jam

Our friends at Burt’s Boards skate shop in Chippenham are hosting a brilliant day of skating fun at our skatepark.

Burt’s Fest is free to attend. It will kick off at noon and run throughout the afternoon (maybe even into early evening). Swing by to check out the skate jam. This will include a skate competition with prizes, so bring your board or buy one on site.

The Arc cafe will be open throughout serving all the usual great food (pizzas, burgers, light bites, sweet treats, ice cream and more) plus specials. The centre will be open for climbing, so why not book a roped taster or try bouldering. No course or booking required to boulder. There is also a free play park on site.

There will also be:

– Skate shop stalls
– A graffiti display
– Music by Mac Lloyd

If you enjoyed The Arc Jam or if you missed out last time – get the date in your diary!


Parking at The Arc is paid using RingGo, so download the app to save time before you visit. We are super close to the bus and train train station and have loads of bike parking, so you can leave the car at home.
