Parade Gardens. Sun 26th May from 6pm til 11pm
A foot-stomping line up of talented local FOLK bands playing on the new hand-forged BathIRON bandstand. Bring the whole family! BOOK HERE
Join us in Parade Gardens again for an exciting one night event. There will be a line-up of talented local FOLK bands, to celebrate the installation of the BathIRON bandstand balustrade. The balustrade is a beautiful sculptural piece, which was hand-forged by teams of blacksmiths from all over the UK during BathIRON – festival of ironwork in June 2018.
We’ve handpicked some of the best local folk bands from Bath, Frome, the Mendips and Bristol – with something for absolutely everyone so bring the whole family! There’ll be a bar and food stalls, and we’ll also be celebrating the traditional heritage craft of the artist blacksmith with live forging demonstrations throughout the evening.
The FireFOLK line up will feature Sinnober, The Drystones, Nathanial Mann, The Striking Clock and The Railway Sleepers: with everything from atmospheric folk-swing harmonies, foot-stomping jazz funk to roof-raising, barn-storming gypsy punk – it will be an absolute blast. Scroll down to listen to the bands …
