Festival of Dance


15 – 24 July

Join us this summer for our inaugural ‘Festival of Dance’ featuring ten days of exceptional performances, workshops, suppers, talks and other events at Messums Wiltshire.

One of the most dynamic artistic mediums, dance, has the ability to inspire, activate the mind and bring people together like no other art form.

This year, as a part of the Festival of Dance Messums Wiltshire will be introducing a newly established emerging choreographer platform 4 by 20.  Through this platform, the organisation will support two choreographers at the beginning of their career, providing a commission for the artists to develop new dance pieces as well as present their work at the festival. In 2022 the 4 by 20 call out is aimed at female-identifying choreographers only.
