Bath Festivals is a registered charity responsible for two festivals, The Bath Festival in the spring and Bath Children’s Literature Festival in the autumn. We bring some of the finest international musicians, speakers and writers to entertain audiences in the beautiful venues of our world heritage city. Building on our 70-year heritage, we are turning Bath into one of the top three festival cities in the UK.

Our festivals are also a platform for the voices of young people – our year-round Creative Learning programme of hands-on music and literature projects give opportunities to young people, to empower them to become confident and creative individuals, putting their ideas at the heart of our projects.
