Bath is a wonderfully versatile city that refuses to be pigeonholed as being popular for any one aspect, although it’s well-known for its year-round events. Summer is one of the busiest times of the year in Bath and Somerset, and it’s usually ideal weather for outdoor occasions. And there really is no better city or county to host all manner of events, and organisers find a lot of support for their work here.

Any event organiser will tell you that their work is more than a full-time job in the months leading up to a major event. It’s a twenty-four-seven type of vocation that can become very stressful and chaotic, to increasing degrees as the date moves closer.
