Striking a Chord

Festival fever has started to grip the city and businesses are joining in.  Throughout Bath, shops and venues are embracing the opportunity to get involved and the skyline in Milsom Street has a cascade of musical notes strung on high.  This innovative installation was funded by the Bath Business Improvement District, helping to enliven the street, whilst keeping with Bath’s provenance as a Heritage City.  Milsom Street will be closed to traffic from 1 pm on 19 May (Party in the City) allowing businesses to fully enjoy the opportunity of a traffic free day.  As the Party continues into the night Bath BID Businesses across the city have embraced the opportunity to get involved; from the Festival Hub in the Assembly Rooms to Milsom Place, Boston Tea Party, Woods, Moles and the Nest in the north of the city, to Komedia, the Gainsborough Hotel Chapel and the Roman Baths in the centre, and Southgate area.  Many other Bath BID Businesses and landmark buildings will become host venues throughout the Festival period, hosting over 40,000 visitors and adding to the vibrancy and buzz of Bath.
