BID Chief Executive, Allison Herbert, said, “As the UK’s no. 1 spa city and with the recent second UNESCO accreditation as part of the Great Spas of Europe project, Bath should be delivering an event that celebrates the city’s unique thermal origins to bring new visitors to Bath, encourage local residents to try out wellness experiences in their city and give city-centre workers new lunch time and after work activities to enjoy.

“Listening to our Levey Payers, we wanted to bring an event to the city in February when footfall needs boosting, and the time of year works well for wellbeing. We look forward to working with them over the next few months on Re:Balance Bath to create a festival with a dynamic and broad range of events and activities to suit all ages, increase awareness for their business and further promote Bath as a key spa and wellness destination.”

As well as reflecting the seven pillars of wellness, Re:Balance Bath will have themed days including Motivational Mondays, Water Wednesdays, Food Fridays and Soulful Sundays.
