Free Events

Westbury Festival is delighted to offer many free events through the kindness of our partners and sponsors. You don’t need tickets for these events – just turn up. We hope that you will also be able to support the festival by attending some of our paid events as well; in most cases, the money is going to the group who organised the event so they will be relying on your support.
