The biggest night of free entertainment in Bath will be taking place in venues and on the streets of Bath on Friday evening 18 May for Party in the City.

It is all part of The Bath Festival taking place in May, with music, arts and literature events all over the city.

The streets, parks and venues in the city will be filled with the sound of music so if you like acoustic, jazz, classical, choral, folk, world, indie or pop music come along! The evening starts with the Schools Commission in Bath Abbey where children will become ‘festival spirits’, celebrating Bath Festivals’ 70th anniversary through song, stories and visual arts. After dark, Queen Square, Parade Gardens and Brunel Square will be alive with music, local food and drink. Indoor events will take place in 34 venues, with 2,000+ performers and, historically, the evening has attracted more than 20,000 people to the city.

The evening starts at 6pm with a children’s event at Bath Abbey to celebrate the festival 70th anniversary through song, stories and visual arts.
