Bath Festivals welcomes visitors with disabilities

Please advise the Box Office of your requirements when making a booking. Visitors with a disability who need to bring a personal assistant are offered one free ticket. If you require a BSL interpreter, please enquire at the Box Office and we will do our best to accommodate this.

Please quote the event code when booking. Event times are approximate and doors open 15 minutes before each event. Tickets are non-refundable, but if an event sells out we are happy to offer returned tickets for resale. A £2 per ticket handling charge will apply on all resold tickets. Please note any fees are non-refundable. Programmes and performers may be subject to change. All information in the brochure was correct at the time of going to press.

Some events or shows may be filmed or photographed. Buying a ticket affirms your consent to the filming, sound recording, or photographing of yourself as a member of the audience.

Child Protection Policy

Children under 12 must be accompanied by a ticket buying adult at all festivals events unless otherwise stated. Children under 2 do not require a ticket, unless a storytime event. Bath Festivals maintain a Child Protection Policy but cannot act in loco parentis or take responsibility of wandering children.


You can drop children who are 8 or older at these events, so only need to buy a ticket for each child attending. We ask parents/carers to children off at the venue, sign them in, and leave a mobile contact number in case of emergencies. If adults need to stay with their child, they can attend for free. Our Aardman workshops are open to adults as well as children so you can make together as a family, please buy a ticket for each person who wants to make a model.

Free Tickets

We want to support as many children as we can to access out festival and to share the joy of reading. We have a limited number of free tickets available for families and schools. If you are a family who would benefit from these tickets please get in touch:


If you are a B&NES school and would like to request free ticket please email

Tickets For Good

We are also working with Tickets For Good and their Affordable Ticket Project, enabling anyone who’s received a Cost of Living payment from the UK Government in the past 6 months at the time of verification to access free and affordably-priced tickets.

If you would like to support others to access free tickets you can donate via out Share the Story scheme. Share the Story allows you to donate when purchasing your tickets and we use your donation to purchase tickets and contribute to travel expenses for schools and families, or you can make a general donation HERE.

‘We were incredibly grateful to be given tickets – the boys would not have had an opportunity to take part if it hasn’t been for the generosity of your organisation. The events were engaging, entertaining and inspirational.’
