It’s an ideal way to meet various sporting celebrities, get dressed up and dance the night away in one of Bath’s most historic buildings.
A unique seasonal event is Jane Austen’s Regency Christmas exhibition, which takes place at the Jane Austen Centre in the heart of the city. This is a special event as it celebrates one of Bath’s most famous residents, her life and the Georgian period in which she lived. This event starts on the 26th of November and runs until the end of December.
An alternative event, which also commences on the 26th of November and runs through till the 8th of January, is Bruce Munro’s famous Field of Light, being held at the rear of the Holburne Museum of Art located in Great Pulteney Street.
