Illuminate Bath, 1 - 13 November 2010

Illuminate Bath is a new arts festival transforming the city’s streets over two weeks from 1 - 13 November. More than 50 artists and performers will be showcasing their work in different locations around Bath.

The Illuminate Bath programme includes projections, dance, sculpture, film, music, animation, textiles, installations, theatre, poetry and workshops. You can find these around the city centre, both indoors and outdoors in spaces where you would not necessarily expect to see art.  Most of the festival is completely free, with the exception of a few performances and workshops which are ticketed.

Students, graduates and staff from Bath Spa University and Relays (Regional Educational Legacy in Arts and Youth Sports) are the creative force behind Illuminate Bath. They have developed ideas in response to the theme of this year’s festival, which is kinetic energy (energy generated by movement) and light.

The grand finale takes place on Saturday 13 November, when the festival finishes with a dazzling free event featuring interactive projections and performances in SouthGate Place from 5pm to 8pm.  Catch a glimpse of the action as you pass through or stay for the duration and soak up the atmosphere.
