University of Bath Festival
Everyone loves a party! That’s why, to mark our 50th birthday, we want to celebrate with as many of our neighbours and friends as possible. Our festival is for everyone. Do join us. It’s free, and it’s set to be a lot of fun! Come up to campus and enjoy music, dance and food. Meet our amazing researchers, take up a new sporting challenge, join a craft workshop or listen to a multitude of talks and demos on science, technology, health…the list goes on!
Whether you could be the next Olympic champion or you like things at a slower pace, our Sports Training Village will be buzzing with all things Active. Try out a new sport (we’ve got 15 to choose from), browse the stalls, watch a match, bounce about on the inflatables and enjoy the BBQ and music. Then it’s ‘eyes up’ at noon to watch the the Red Devils freefall in.
Come and let your mind wander in our Creative Zone in the Edge Arts Centre. There’s lots to get your hands on, from chair making to tower building, arts and crafts and pottery. Let your creativity flow as you tap your way into one of our dance workshops and stroll through our exhibitions. Then, sit back and soak up the village fete atmosphere with our brass band.
Our Discover zone is all about hands-on fun! Come and meet a robot, build a crystal, explore the universe, try out our race simulator, and put our researchers to the test. See, do and learn something new. Hook a duck, hurl a coconut, grab an ice cream and head over to hear some great music near the lake. We’ve even got a maypole to swing around!

We have booked a photo booth from A Box Of Pics to help celebrate our 50th Year Anniversary. They will be supplying their ever-popular, easy-to-use Photo Booth. Included in their package are a box of very cool props, a member of staff to operate the booth and personalised prints. We’re looking forward to having them be part of our special day and helping to make some fun and memorable photos for all.
