Local Businesses

Bring the festival buzz to Bath

As part of our partnership with Bath BID, we would like to collaborate with local businesses to encourage footfall in stores, increase sales and create a festival buzz that will make everyone feel like The Bath Festival is approaching. Here are some of the ways we can work together.

We have a dedicated page on our website to promote sales and offers leading up to and during the festival. We will promote this offers page regularly on our social media channels and in our e-newsletter which goes to over 30k people. In turn, we are asking businesses to use our logo to promote offers on their own marketing channels too, using the standard text: “We are proud to support The Bath Festival which takes place from 12 to 21 May. For more information, visit www.thebathfestival.org.uk.”

Upload your offer to: bathfestivals.org.uk/the-bath-festival/upload-offer

Would you like to win some top prizes?

We would like to offer all businesses the opportunity to create window displays based on a festival theme, ‘Celebrating Music and Books in a Beautiful City’. We will provide all participants with a window decal. Remember that The Bath Festival is a multi-arts festival with words and music at its heart. Window displays will need to be in place by 1 May.

We’re giving away £100 Bath Gift Card, £100 Minuteman voucher, £100 food hamper donated by Nicholas Wylde, as well as a bundle of Festival books. On top of all that, you can treat your team with four event tickets just for entering!
