In 2020EventsWinter

The New Year is on the way, and there's plenty to do across Wiltshire. So plan yourself a busy January packed with exciting events; beat the January Blues, line up your resolutions and see in the new decade in style!

Circus of Horrors Swindon

Theatre and Performance
On 21 January, the Circus of Horrors comes to Wyvern Theatre in Swindon. Expect a night like no other with bizarre and amazing acts performing to a rock and roll soundtrack. The Circus of Horrors will have you perching on the edge of your seat - when you're not falling off it with laughter. If you're looking for something more family-friendly, January is your last chance to catch many of the season's festive pantomimes. Robin Hood will be running at Salisbury Playhouse until 12 January, featuring all the familiar pantomime tropes plus plenty of silliness and songs. 

Food and Drink
Will you be taking part in Veganuary this January? With vegetarianism and veganism becoming ever more popular, now may be the time to refresh your recipe book with some delicious new plant-based recipes. Head to the Vegan Variety Cooking Class at Vaughan's Cookery School in Devizes on 16 January to learn to make some tasty vegan food, including chocolate, orange & hazelnut brownies served with coconut cream. Yum! If you prefer someone else to do the cooking for you, book your space on the upcoming Blues Night Supper Club at the Best Western Angel Hotel in Chippenham where you can enjoy a three course meal accompanied by lovely live music. 

Exhibitions and Art 
Just outside the Wiltshire border in the stunning heritage city of Bath you will find the Holburne Museum. Here, hotly anticipated exhibition Grayson Perry: The Pre-Therapy Years launches at the end of January 2020. This exhibition will feature a broad range of Grayson Perry's early works, including many works which have never previously been displayed publicly. Meanwhile, Glynn Uzzell, 1930-2014: a Retrospective Exhibition at Swindon Museum and Art Gallery explores the life and work of Swindon-born painter and printmaker Glynn Uzzell.

Music
This January, Wiltshire’s biggest Winter music festival - Bradford Roots - returns for another year of folk, jazz, bluegrass and world music. The Festival kicks off on 17 January with the Bradford Roots Music Festival 2020 Launch Night, where you can enjoy local music and great food at the start of this iconic community music event. On a different note, there will be some great tribute performances taking place in Wiltshire this January including One Night of Queen in Salisbury on 11 January and The ELO Encounter on 16 January in Chippenham.

Hopefully that's plenty to inspire you to get out and about across Wiltshire this January... If you need somewhere to stay during your visit, take a look at our accommodation page for cute cottages, historic hotels and sumptuous spas.
