The Theatre Chipping Norton

We are a feisty, ambitious theatre, cinema and arts centre.

Chipping Norton Theatre is a much-loved Cotswold home to theatre, independent cinema, music, comedy and much more. We offer a huge range of interactive arts activities, and produce our own theatre productions which often tour across the country. We are a socially enterprising business, a charity and a warm welcome to anyone who wants to think, laugh, cry or try something they’ve never done or seen before.

We hope to see you here soon!

Fairport Convention at The Theatre Chipping Norton - Tues 4th June @ 7:45pm

Fairport Convention has been making great music for over fifty years. Credited with originating British folk-rock music, the band has been through many changes but the current members retain a passion for live performance. This year’s Spring Tour will feature a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and new material.

Fairport Convention has attracted critical acclaim: the band has won a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award; Radio 2 listeners voted Fairport’s ground-breaking album Liege & Lief 'The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time'; and their story has been celebrated with a major documentary on BBC Four television.

Fairport Convention features Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, Ric Sanders on violin and Gerry Conway on drums and percussion.

Whether you are a long-time fan or a newcomer to their music, an evening with Fairport Convention is sure to surprise and delight you. “Impressive musicians with a great back catalogue... (they) take chances and clearly enjoy themselves.” The Guardian “Vigorous and confident...the music leapt around the room.” The Mirror
