All the Bath characters through the years are there.

This event is guaranteed to be packed full of fascinating facts and anecdotes; including the architect John Wood’s theories about magic and druids, the origin of the Bath Bun and the truth behind John Betjeman’s famous poem, ‘In a Bath Teashop’. He talks to Marion Milne.
