Bath Carnival will be bringing the streets of Bath to life this year on 15 July with its theme of Colourful Creatures. Everyone is invited to get dressed up as their favourite or imaginary creature and join in with the festivities, and if you need help making your costume there will be free workshops in Green Park Station in the run-up to the carnival. As part of the iconic event, there will be Samba bands, Mardi Gras brass and Caribbean steel pan drummers, mini-sound systems and lots of dancers parading through the city.
On the opening day in Sydney Gardens, the Smerins Anti-Social Club, a 10-piece line-up, will be headlining the show by performing tracks from their new album Jelly Deals. As well as live music, entertainment, a Super Pirates children’s play zone and dance and drumming workshops, this year’s Sydney Gardens party will feature a mouth-watering selection of independent food and drink traders hand-picked by Ash Bailey from local drinks company Henny & Joes. Food and fun – the best combination.
The carnival starts at 10am in Sydney Gardens and runs ‘til late. An after party will be held at Moles from 10pm and tickets cost £6 in advance. Visit www.bathcarnival.co.uk for more
