The Bath Festival returns for its second year in 2018. It is a 17 day multi-arts festival celebrating the city through music and literature.
There will be a variety of shows covering classical music, jazz, world and folk music alongside contemporary fiction, intelligent debate, science, history, politics and poetry.
The Festival culminates in a 'Finale Weekend', during which Bath Recreation Ground will play host to a variety of performers, inlcuding Tears for Fears, Sophie Ellis-Bexter, Robert Plane and Imelda May.
Most events require advance purchase of tickets, which can be obtained from the festival website.
Getting there: Bath is easily accessible by train or car. It takes one and a half hours from London Paddington station on South West Trains. If travelling by car, we recommend parking in one of the large ‘park and ride’ car parks on the outskirts of town, and taking the regular bus into the centre, as parking in central Bath is difficult and expensive.
