Bath Festivals is a registered charity. For nearly 70 years, we have brought the world’s most inspiring artists and thinkers to perform in Bath’s amazing spaces. In 2017, we delivered two festivals, The Bath Festival and Bath Children’s Literature Festival in the autumn, showcasing incredible talent and creativity whilst creating memorable experiences that everyone can enjoy.

Our festivals are also a platform for the voices of young people – we run a year-round education programme providing creative opportunities for 6,000+ every year. We empower young people to become confident and creative individuals, putting their ideas at the heart of our projects.
