Coming up this week
There are various pre-festival shows this week, but the official start is Friday 27th March. The Opening Night Gala Cabaret show is SOLD OUT, but there are plenty of other events on offer and The Bath Brew House starts its run of FIDO (Free In Donation Out) shows.
First weekend headliners at the lovely Bath Cricket Club venue include Viv Groskop - "Say Sorry To The Lady" and Danny Buckler's Magic Salon on Saturday, and the fabulous Fred MacAulay on Sunday.
The Bath Brew House has a full weekend of FIDO shows and Rob Coleman - Ocean Going Idiot is at the Assembly Inn.
The 8th Wine Arts Trail has literally only a handful of tickets left for the Sunday morning trip - snap them up if you want to join in the fun!
Don't forget the clocks go forward this weekend!
Terry Jones tickets now on sale!
Festival Patron and Python star Terry Jones will be at the Little Theatre Cinema on Easter Sunday afternoon.
There are two separate ticketed parts to the event:
