Help us create an exciting public artwork at the heart of a World Heritage City
BathIRON will offer the opportunity to forge with Master smiths as they bring to life a brand new ‘musical score’ balustrade for the Parade Gardens bandstand.
This 4-day festival is open to the public and there will be plenty of exciting activities for all the family, including exhibitions, walking tours and hands-on opportunities.
