Free fun-packed community afternoon on offer at Sydney Gardens in Bath


A host of free activities are being offered to residents and visitors to celebrate Bath’s Sydney Gardens, with something for everyone in the community to enjoy on one special day.

A model railway, working forge, live classical music, guided tours and family-friendly creative activities are all included in the Friends of Sydney Gardens Community Day to encourage visitors to the UK’s only surviving Georgian Pleasure Gardens.

The event, on Sunday 15th September, has been organised by Bath and North East Somerset Council and the Friends of Sydney Gardens to entice more people to explore the gardens, which are undergoing restoration following a £2.7m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The event runs from 1pm to 4pm and also includes stalls and activities from Bath Area Play Project, Bath Bees, RSPB and Kennet & Avon Canal.

Donkey Rides are being provided over the afternoon by Danny’s Donkeys – a rescue centre for donkeys, and an Avon Fire & Rescue engine will be on site from 2pm to 3pm.
