2 Special August Events with The Bath Folk Festival

THE BATH ARTISAN MARKET’S FREE FOLK MUSIC SUNDAY!

 1. SUNDAY AUGUST 10TH, 10AM-4PM, GREEN PARK STATION, BATH

On Sunday August 10th The Bath Artisan Market is delighted to welcome back bands from The Bath Folk Festival who will be playing all day at Green Park Station.

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 ARDS CCE from Ireland. 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. The Bath Artisan Market runs on the second Sunday of each month and recently one a BEHTA Award (Bath Events, Hospitality and Tourism Award) for working with other events in the city like the Bath Folk Festival.
