Do you love music and books as much as we do? Our festival membership is for people who wish to help the arts thrive in Bath.

As a charity we work throughout the year to deliver the festivals, developing partnerships with organisations including Mentoring Plus, the egg, Bath Spa University, The Holburne Museum, House of Imagination and Youth Connect South West as well as school and venues – building on our decade of experience in bringing together young people and creative opportunities.

The income we receive from memberships helps us to support The Bath Festival, The Bath Children’s Literature Festival, Reading is Magic Festival and our year-round Creative Learning Programme, which provides unique creative opportunities and life-enhancing experiences for children and young people.

Membership lasts for 12 months, costs from just £25 a year and covers both The Bath Festival in May and Bath Children’s Literature Festival in the autumn.
