Enjoy music and literature from around the world with an incredible programme of arts and events.
The world-famous UNESCO World Heritage Site is alluring any time of year, but May is an extra special month when the Bath Festival adds even more finery to the city.
Focusing mainly on international music and contemporary literature, the Bath Festival offers rare opportunities to listen to celebrated authors discuss their work or take in unique live music performances. High-profile guests at this year's festival include Sir Michael Parkinson, Sara Cox and Prue Leith.
One of the most important events of the month - Party in the City - takes place on 17 May and features thousands of performances in venues across Bath, all of which are free to attend.
The Bath Festival 2019 takes place between 17-26 May; tickets to all events are available via the website now.
