Bath residents and visitors are invited to enjoy a range of festive events and activities this December at the Roman Baths, Fashion Museum and Victoria Art Gallery.

Children can get crafty and make Christmas fairies, Roman lamps and multi-coloured star ornaments, and there will be a chance for shoppers to sample honey mead and other locally made produce in the Roman Baths Shop as part of Museum Shop Sunday.

Look out for the Christmas tree in the Victoria Art Gallery foyer, organised each year by the Friends of the Gallery. This year, the tree will celebrate the gallery’s exhibition programme with the Trustees of the Friends creating colourful, recycled decorations using surplus promotional material and postcards.

Museum Shop Sunday
The Roman Baths Shop

Each Christmas the Roman Baths Shop welcomes local shoppers and Bath visitors alike, offering a carefully curated collection of decorations for the home and gifts inspired by the Roman and Georgian history of the city.

On Museum Shop Sunday, visitors will be entertained by costumed Roman characters while you browse and sample a selection of goods made by local and artisanal producers, from festively flavoured fudge to warming honey mead – perfect for presents!
