Campden is blessed with many community organisations and groups that bring people together for a wide variety of activities of common interest.
Campden Business Forum helps create an environment where business can prosper by tackling issues on behalf of our members that would be difficult to address individually; by actively participating in the business community; by communicating useful information to members and by being a driver of change and improvement when necessary. We can also act as a confidential, personal, sounding-board for businesses that would like to discuss any issues they are facing.
We are offering support to Campden’s business community to help them overcome any particular concerns they may have during this difficult period, and to offer guidance on what official support is available.
The Campden Society has the following aims: 1) To secure the protection of the architectural and historic quality of Campden, its open spaces and its natural setting. 2) To promote high standards of planning, architecture and landscaping in Campden. 3) To stimulate interest in and concern for the character and beauty of Campden.
Chipping Campden History Society (CCHS) aims to involve people of all ages in understanding and enjoying the history of Campden and surrounding villages through a programme of meetings, talks, outings, research and exhibitions.
“Chipping Campden Music Festival brings worldclass artists – and also young musicians starting their professional journeys – to a wonderful venue. After a long lifetime as a performer, having the chance to be part of the audience and to hear concerts of outstanding quality in such a setting is the purest joy.” - Bernard Haitink
“I only discovered the joys of Chipping Campden late in my performing career but still relished the opportunity to play in the glorious acoustics of St James’ Church. Since retiring from the concert platform I have returned a number of times to lecture at the music festival and can’t think of many places that rival this most picturesque Cotswold town in late spring.” - Alfred Brendel
Campden Music Winter Season offers a series of six winter concerts from October to March each year in the superb acoustic of St James’ Church.
By offering these on a subscription basis we are able to enjoy a very high standard of music at an incredibly reasonable cost.
