Bath’s Biggest Community Project. With a jam-packed calendar of events throughout the year from Carnival club nights, to immersive arts and crafts workshops.
On the big Carnival day you can expect an eclectic mix of World music at the Party in the Park in Sydney Gardens and over a thousand dancers, musicians and sound systems in our processions.
Bath Racecourse is situated on Lansdown hill just outside of Bath city centre. The racecourse has flat racing fixtures during the spring and summer, as well as lots of different events throughout the year, from family fun days to Christmas party nights.
A celebration of the BathIRON balustrade, Parade Gardens.
Sunday 26th May 2019 – 6pm til late
Join us in Parade Gardens for a fresh line-up of talented local FOLK bands, to celebrate the installation of the BathIRON bandstand balustrade – a beautiful sculptural piece which was hand-forged by teams of blacksmiths from all over the UK during BathIRON Festival in June 2018.
We’ve handpicked some of the best local folk bands from Bath, Frome, the Mendips and Bristol – with something for absolutely everyone so bring the whole family! There’ll be a bar and food stalls, and we’ll also be celebrating the traditional heritage craft of the artist blacksmith with live forging demonstrations throughout the evening.
The FireFOLK line up will feature Sinnober, The Drystones, Nathanial Mann, The Striking Clock and The Railway Sleepers: with everything from atmospheric folk-swing harmonies, foot-stomping jazz funk to roof-raising, barn-storming gypsy punk – we promise it will be an absolute blast for the whole family. Don’t miss it!
