Culture Guide To Bath

Culture in Bath From musical traditions to international interest, when it comes to Bath culture the city's folk like to celebrate in style with a range of festivals throughout the year.

The Bath International Music Festival takes place at various venues throughout the city and if you want to see the festival in full swing then plan your visit for late May to early June.

The festival usually kicks off with a free open-air concert on the opening night and in 2004 it was attended by more than 23,000 people.

The festival brings together national and international music talent from just about every genre you can think of, who perform at various locations including pubs, clubs, theatres and the very streets of Bath. This family-friendly event brings the whole community together in foot-tapping appreciation at the wonderful artists performing.

The Bath Fringe Festival encompasses every aspect of contemporary art, music and drama and is one of the largest of its kind in the country.

Local artists, performers, celebrity guests and theatre companies descend on various locations around the city to play, act, write, display and immerse themselves in this culture corner of Somerset.

Writers won’t want to miss The Bath Literature Festival which is held in late February and early March at theatres, pubs and libraries across the city. Famous faces seen here in previous years include, Melvyn Bragg, Toby Litt and Julie Myerson.

There’s also plenty of opportunities for new writers to start out on their creative paths. Educational workshops are organised at libraries and in learning environments. Many involve successful poets, actors and directors actually giving advice to those with a passion for the arts and an interest in their field.
