Coronavirus Statement 20.03.2020
We write in the face of the fast changing and challenging situation. Our thoughts are with you all and we are hugely grateful for your patience and support at this time. The wellbeing of our audiences, partners, staff, volunteers, artists and community is paramount.
Due to the rapid escalation of the COVID-19 virus and the new government advice and guidelines, it is with a heavy heart that we now have to formally let you know that events across the 2020 Beethoven weekend in March, The Bath Festival and The Bath Festival Finale Weekend in May will not be taking place at that time; individual events will either be rescheduled or cancelled.

About Bath Festivals
Bath Festivals is a charity that brings some of the finest international musicians, speakers and writers to entertain audiences, in the beautiful venues and spaces of our world heritage city. By creating innovative and diverse programmes, our festivals inspire and provide unique experiences for residents and visitors to Bath. We are responsible for The Bath Festival in the summer and Bath Children’s Literature Festival in the autumn, which bring the city alive with a celebration of the arts. Our year-round creative learning programme of hands-on music and literature projects gives children and young people opportunities to gain real-world experience, building their inner confidence and improving communication skills through the arts.
