News, events and schools' information for families across Bath and West Wiltshire

The Batheaston Meadowfest is coming to Mike’s Meadow in Northend, Batheaston on 18 May from 1-5pm, offering what promises to be a great day out for the whole family.

Mike’s Meadow is a hidden gem, perfect for play and partying. It’s a car free environment so children can run free. The festival is set to offer a choice of activities for children – everything from face painting, to forest school, to crafts and games.

While the children are busy having fun, parents can relax and enjoy live music, a well stocked bar and a range of tempting stalls, including home-baked cakes and treats, face painting, circus skills and plants.

Meadowfest is organised by the Friends of Batheaston School to raise money for the local primary school. What started as a well kept local secret has gradually snowballed into an annual family-friendly party, welcoming visitors from all over Bath.

Entry is £2 for adults and £1 for children and many of the children’s activities are free, so this is one wonderful day out that won’t break the bank.
