COVID-19: Advice for our clients

For any of our customers who have event bookings in April and May 2020, a full refund or free transfer to a comparable date, is being offered.  While the buildings will be closed for now, the Bath’s Historic Venues team are working behind the scenes and we are still taking bookings for future dates. 

As our plans for reopening become clearer, we will keep you informed on our website and social media channels with any information and updates.  Please do stay in touch by following us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
