Summer Sundays


In June, July and August, we celebrated the city’s reopening with Summer Sundays, a programme of entertainment, events and activities for all the family.

Visitors could enjoy pop-up entertainment around the city centre, free family-friendly workshops, and a plethora of festivals and events.

Stay tuned for updates on next year’s Summer Sundays.


There were plenty of ways to celebrate Summer Sundays in Bath without breaking the bank.

Visitors could enjoy a variety of pop-up performances, from Jane Austen dancers to samba bands, around the city centre.

On some Summer Sundays, our talented balloon artist and face painters were out and about in the city centre.

There were also free family-friendly arts and crafts workshops at 15 Cheap Street between 12pm and 4pm, with a variety of creative activities on offer.
