Bath is a diverse and cultural place to visit, and although summer seems way off in the distance at the moment it’ll be time to get excited about its next folk festival before you can say ‘dance workshop’. Many people time their spa breaks in Bath during August so they can enjoy the diversity and live entertainment that comes with the annual festival and then immerse themselves in luxury at one of the city’s world-famous spas.
The festival celebrates all aspects of folk music, and its programme always includes live gigs, workshops and sessions. Expect to see some of the biggest names of the genre as they take to all kinds of venues across Bath. From the friendly, informal pubs to bigger venues, this is a festival that everyone gets involved in and there’s always a friendly atmosphere that makes it great fun.
One of the nicest things about the festival is the spontaneous shows that take place during it…it’s not uncommon to see an impromptu gig break out and those around join in, and that makes it even more special. This event is a highlight for all lovers of folk music, and it’s never too early to book your accommodation.
