bath festivals

There are numerous Bath Festivals throughout the year.

The Old Theatre Royal takes part in many of the different Bath Festivals each year.  The building hosts events, performances and also gigs for all the major Bath Festivals and more.

The Bath Festival – May 17th – 26th 2019

The Bath Festival takes place annually over two weeks in late May to early June, and the Old Theatre Royal is a venue for some of the events.  Previously known as the Bath International Music Festival, it was relaunched in 2017 as the Bath Festival.  This was due to it being a new multi-arts festival for the city.  The festival features a wide range of music and literary events.  Featured guests range from international stars to emerging local artists, both professional and amateur.

Bath Fringe Festival – May 24th – June 9th 2019

The Bath Fringe is a festival of all the arts, with few rules as to what should be in or out.  It’s about what people want to do, and also what venues in Bath want to put on.  It all happens for almost 3 weeks during early summer.  The Old Theatre Royal is one of the main music venues for the Fringe each year.
