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

Bath charity Julian House is calling on families and board game fans to join in for its first Bath Board Game Day, taking place on Sunday 3 November. This one day only ‘pop-up’ event will see hundreds of families, friends and board game enthusiasts gaming for a good cause in the auditorium of Komedia, Bath.

Gamers, new and experienced, can choose to come along for the whole day or just four hours and will have the opportunity to play lots of different games suitable for all ages, including big blockbuster hits, classics and indie gems. Whether it’s a quick and playful game of bluffing and laughter, or a lengthy game full of strategy and skill, there’s something for everyone.

Bath Gaming Group have kindly offered to support the event, meaning there will also be avid game hosts on hand to help novice participants work through the rules and instructions. There’s also an exciting nine-hour ‘Hive’ challenge that will be live streamed on the day for people to get involved in, plus a ‘board game bundle’ raffle – making ideal winnings for the upcoming festive period.

Event’s organiser, Jessica Gay, said, “Bath Board Game Day is Bath’s very own ‘pop-up’ board game café. It’s all about having fun with family and friends for a good cause. You can feel great knowing your ticket is contributing to Julian House and all the work we do to support vulnerable and socially excluded individuals. It’s a chance to be part of something bigger and join us in our mission to alleviate homelessness in and around Bath.”
