Party In The City

19 MAY

Milsom Place courtyards

Party in the City traditionally takes place on the opening Friday of the Bath International Music Festival. In 2017, Party in the City will open Bath’s new flagship festival – The Bath Festival – on Friday 19th May. The night includes over 2,000 performers across 30+ venues and 3 outdoor arenas. It is Bath’s largest arts event and free for everyone to attend.

Jump in to Bath’s greatest party and open The Bath Festival with an almighty celebration. This year we are filling the streets, parks and venues of Bath with a multitude of arts from electro-swing to cheerleading to Chinese shadow-puppetry. The city will come alive with folk, rock, classical, jazz, acoustic, swing and soul – and it’s all free!
