Playing the Picturesque at The Edge in Bath

  • Andrew Brownsword Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Step into the gallery and experience an interactive installation exploring the boundaries between virtual and physical space.

We are delighted to present Playing the Picturesque this autumn on tour at the Andrew Brownsword Gallery in Bath. Complimenting the four original follies commissioned for the RIBA's Architecture Gallery, this iteration premiers a new addition: the local landmark Palladian Bridge at Prior Park.

The installation takes the form of a series of scaled folly structures extracted from real picturesque landscapes, extended into interactive virtual game environments through digital projections. By exploring the movement between physical and virtual realms, it asks whether such boundaries are now so fluid that we can consider virtual worlds as sites for realising architecture in their own right.

You+Pea is the architectural design studio of Sandra Youkhana and Luke Caspar Pearson. Their work explores the integration of video game technologies into architectural design.

What does new technology and density mean for citizens of the future? And what does it mean for the design and construction industries?

Join Henrik Johnnson of BoKlok (a joint venture between Skanska and IKEA), Architect Yuli Cadney-Toh (BDP), Joe Daniels of Etopia and Elena Marco of UWE Bristol for a lively discussion on the housing of the future.

Join architect and former town councillor Colin Cobb for an exploration of civic and public projects

About this Event

What is the civic impact of a major project on a city or town?

Should architects involve themselves in the political and civic life of where they live and work?

Join architect and former town councillor Colin Cobb for an exploration of the way that civic and public projects come about and how architects engage themselves with that process.

From the grand scale of University projects and city masterplans to re-imagining the role of a parish council to make real projects happen, Colin will make a plea to architects to actively engage themselves in civic life.

About the speaker:

Colin Cobb is an associate at FCB Studios and was the project architect of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, a state of the art music college for Birmingham City University specifically designed to cater for the demands of the digital age, which features a 480 seat orchestral concert hall, multiple smaller venues and a suite of recording studios.

Colin served as an independent town councillor in Frome from 2015 - 2019 overseeing the conversion of the Town Hall, co-chairing the Planning Advisory Group and sitting on the Saxonvale steering group.

DATE: Wednesday 25th September 2019
TIMES: Box Office: 6:30pm / Doors: 7:00pm / Show: 7:30pm 
TICKETS: From £32.50 / £115.00 Meet & Greet Package (+ booking fees*)  

Tickets on sale! Book now.


Join Britain’s most decorated Olympian Sir Bradley Wiggins as he tours theatres throughout the UK with his insightful and at times hilarious live show. ‘Bradley Wiggins: An Evening With’ provides a rare opportunity for fans to see the five-time Olympic Gold medallist and Tour De France winner share exclusive tales, prized memorabilia and career highlights in a unique and intimate live setting. The shows will be moderated by ITV cycling presenter and friend of Bradley’s, Matt Barbet, who will also be putting your questions to Wiggo on the night. A British household name and undeniable national treasure, Bradley Wiggins holds the iconic track hour record and is the only cyclist who has won World and Olympic championships on both the track and the road along with winning the Tour De France.

His easy charm in front of the press is legendary and he won the 2012 BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award (voted for by the public), helping cycling smash its way into the mainstream. 2013 brought further success, including the Tour of Britain title, and in 2014 Wiggins added the rainbow jersey to his collection by winning the World Time Trial Championships.

The Summer of 2016 saw Wiggins win his 5th gold medal at the Rio Olympics in the team pursuit and his eighth Olympic medal overall, making him Britain’s most decorated Olympian ever and rounding off one of the most impressive sporting careers the nation has ever witnessed.
Announcing his retirement from professional cycling at the end of 2016, Wiggins said, “2016 is the end of the road for this chapter, onwards and upwards, ‘feet on the ground, head in the clouds’ kids from Kilburn don’t win Olympic Golds and Tour de Frances! They do now.”

Wiggins’ latest release ‘Icons’ takes readers on an extraordinarily intimate journey through the sporting world, presenting key pieces from his never-before-seen collection of memorabilia. Bradley will reflect on the icons, races and moments that have fundamentally influenced him on both professional and personal levels.

Mindfulness walk in Sydney Gardens


Join Huw Griffiths from Mindfulness Bath to take time in the green space of Sydney Gardens.

Mindfulness is paying attention, in the present moment, and without judgement. It is a way of bringing us back in touch with ourselves so that we can relate directly to whatever is happening in our lives right now with acceptance, curiosity, and non-judgement. Practical and simple to learn, easy to use and yet the benefits are immense. Mindfulness helps us to see more clearly our habitual reactions to pressure and stressful events and in each moment we discover ways of responding that are more accepting, kinder to ourselves and less damaging to our health and happiness.

Huw has been running Mindfulness sessions in the park through the summer as part of the Sydney Gardens Project – the park is a lovely place for a Mindfulness Walk with its tranquil atmosphere, canal, bridges and ancient trees. This session is being specially run as part of the Bathscape Walking Festival.

Fantasy Football is back!


No more discussing the weather, cricket or Brexit, we can talk FOOTBALL for 10 months 😊 It all kicks off this Friday, so you need to have your team registered by 7pm on Friday. Those of you who entered last year, you just need to re-pick your team and you should be automatically registered. Those who are new to it, please feel free to join us with the following instructions:

 If you’d like to join us please create a profile at the following website:

 Once you’ve created a profile and picked a team do the following:

 Please note: there is a ‘random pick’ function on the website, which will automatically select a team for you, if you’re unsure about who to choose.

  1. click on the ‘Leagues’ tab at the top of the page

  2. click on ‘Create and Join New Leagues’

  3. click on ‘Join an existing league’

  4. click on ‘Join private league’

  5. enter the following code: higl5u

  6. job done.

 Any problems let me know!

 Fantasy football is where you select players from all the teams in the English Premier League and they accumulate points based on how they play. The winner is the one who attains the most points at the end…in case you didn’t know! Here are some further game related rules and information:

  • Substitutes – these are players that will automatically replace players in your starting 11, provided players in your starting 11 don’t play.

  • Captain – this player gets double points

  • Vice captain – this player gets double points if your captain does not play

  • Transfers – you get 1 free transfer per week, which allows you to swap a player in your current team for a new one, if you want additional transfers these cost you 4 points per transfer. You can save your transfers and use them in the following gameweek if you want (so you can make 2 changes)

  • Wildcard – this can be used only once and allows you to change your whole team permanently

  • Free hit – this can be used only once and allows you to change your whole team for one gameweek

  • Triple captain – this can be used only once and means your captain gets triple points

  • Bench boost – this can be used only once and means all your players score points (including substitutes)

  • Your team will be automatically selected for the following week, however there is usually a deadline if you want to make changes – substitutes or transfers

  • You can select a maximum of 3 players from each team

Please feel free to ask if you want some guidance 😊. Finally, I rarely give out team selection advice, but this year I’ll chuck you all this nugget for free – avoid Jordan Pickford at all costs.

Farmfest, Bruton in Somerset

Carefully crafted into one of the most unique and inclusive small-scale gatherings in the UK, Farmfest is a bubbling blend of unfettered festival frolics and humming party vigour. Where music and people set the tempo and the curious venture.


Set to a sumptuous Somerset backdrop, our pocket-sized field packs in seven music stages to build a swirling musical orchestra with performances from some of the finest emerging and established left-of-mainstream artists, operating within the realms of electronic, indie, folk and world, but where genre meets no border.

From early morning workouts to little ones’ workshops, brilliantly blended beats to riotous jumbles of jazz and brass-based bonanzas, comedy and poetry – or just a touch of the people’s spirited madness – come find your groove. For in this field of fervour, freedom surrounds us.

And as the temperature falls, ours keeps on rising. With an atmosphere that’s slowly but surely been stirring, you’ll find the people and party, positive and purring.

This is for the time out we all seek, set at a price that’s to help and not hinder.  Still consciously capped at 5,000, we’re a festival that doesn’t believe in hype or inflated prices. What we do believe in is putting on awesome party with good music, good causes and good times, for everyone.

He starts in Bristol where, aged around 8, he was shown how the Russians do multiplication using a halving and doubling system, which is really a version of Binary Maths, which enables all our modern electronic technology to function. He then moves through maths history showing how those who came up with new ideas did it to simplify maths and not make it more complex or confusing. He also explains how his approach to maths would improve the modern Maths curriculum and make it both more exciting and more empowering for young people. He ends with the story of Isaac Newton’s discovery and explanation of gravity, which he maintains had nothing what so ever to do with apples.

This event is suitable for adults and ages 9+
