Chippenham is a Purple Flag Town - Choose Chippenham for a Better Night Out!


Chippenham has been a Purple Flag town since 2016.

Chippenham became a Purple Flag town in 2016 and is one of the few market towns in the UK to win this prestigious award for the safety and vibrancy of its nightlife. Purple Flag is an accreditation similar to the Green Flag award for parks and the Blue Flag for beaches. Purple Flag status recognises towns providing a strong and varied mix of night-time entertainment, from 5pm to 5am, that are also safe for residents and visitors alike.
Various organisations work together to make sure that Chippenham is a safe and enjoyable place to visit between 5pm and 5am. The key Purple Flag partners are Chippenham Town Council, Chippenham BID, Wiltshire Council, Wiltshire Police and Chippenham Street Pastors.
