Have we got a summer packed full of delights for you!
Sunday July 13th with free screenprinting with the Happy Inkers
We’re looking forward to our market this Sunday July 13th as we will be undercover in the centre of the city in a beautiful venue packed full of Bath’s most vibrant and creative sellers. Among our treats this weekend are bespoke lampshade making from Revel Interiors – choose your fabric and see your lampshade made there and then just for you. And if you bring along a T-shirt then the Happy Inkers will show you how to screenprint it for free.
Sunday August 10th – Free Folk Music Sunday with the Bath Folk Festival!
Our August market is just as exciting, especially because we have a whole day full of free live music!
Last year’s collaboration between the market and festival was a great success and drew large crowds who were especially entertained by youthful ceilidh band Threepenny Bit and the barn-storming and expansive ARDS CCE from Ireland (there are lots of them!). We’re therefore extremely happy to announce that both acts are returning this year. We’re also very excited about our headline act, is Owl in the Sun, a West Country 6 piece who inhabit a musical world of Americana, gypsy jazz and contemporary folk.
Alongside the free live acts are over 60 stalls selling the best of Bath’s art, vintage and designer-maker wares, plus local food producers, excellent coffee and delicious hot food.
Lunchtime Folk Music & Market, Monday 11th August- Friday 15th August
Picking up where Sunday leaves off, The Bath Artisan Market and The Bath Folk Festival are further collaborating the following week by hosting a special series of free lunchtime gigs on the market square at Green Park Station, Bath.
From Monday 11th August to Friday 15th August there will be live music every day, select artisan and food stalls and free kids’ workshops and activities, so you can come and shop, eat lunch to a soothing folk soundtrack and keep the kids entertained too. You will also be able to buy tickets for other Bath Folk Festival events in the city and find our more about the festival from the Bath Folk Festival’s Info stall which will be there all week.
