Warminster Obelisk


The Warminster Festival was founded by Cllr Joan Main in 1989 to promote and foster appreciation of the arts, sports and leisure activities in Warminster and the community area. The Festival takes place every two years and is overseen by a constituted committee of not more than twelve members.

The members of the committee work very hard to encourage all sections of the Warminster community to take part and feel that this is a festival for them. The committee does not itself run events but arranges the Festival programme and publicity and takes responsibility for the Festival's tiny budget. All events are the responsibility of individual organisers. Members of the committee are volunteers and the festival does not have any paid administrator. All income comes from grants, sponsorship or ticket sales.
