What is Party in the City?

Party in the City will take place on Friday 17 May in 2019. This is Bath’s biggest night of free entertainment across the city and an important part of The Bath Festival celebrations. The night includes over 2,000 performers across 30+ venues and 3 outdoor arenas. It is Bath’s largest arts event and free for everyone to attend.

Where will it happen?

On the night, the festival team programme and produce a variety of events on 3 outdoor stages as well as in Bath’s historic venues, churches and museums. In addition, last year’s event saw 20 commercial live music venues and businesses open their doors for the festival and we are hoping to improve on that this year.

Who is performing this year?

The line-up for Party in the City will be announced in due course so watch this space!

How can I help?

Help us keep Party in the City a free event. Even with the generosity of the venues, bands, our wonderful army of volunteers and the goodwill of all involved Party in the City costs over £20,000 in infrastructure costs, licencing and other ad hoc costs to put on. Bath Festivals is a charity and with diminishing access to public funding, we are looking for sponsors to help us keep Party in the City free and accessible for all.
