Walcot district traders and artists get together next week-end – November 18th to 20th – to bring some seasonal cheer to the historic area.
Walcotfest is aimed at showcasing the best of Bath’s famous Artisan Quarter and celebrating the artisans, restaurants, makers and independent businesses of Walcot.
Jenny Pollitt – Director of Lane House Arts – is one of those involved. She told Bath Newseum:
‘It is all coming together really well with most of the businesses participating in one way or another.
There will be lots of stuff for kids to do over the weekend too – aimed at the local community – with free activities including a secret winter film screening at the Nexus Methodist Chapel 4.30 Saturday 19th, storytelling with Cllr Peter Turner at Lane House Arts 2.30 Sat 19th; faceprinting at different times on Friday and Saturday at Pencil Tree and lots more.
Trees will be lit, a large glitterball installation will appear at the exit to the Cattle market car park; there will be live action painting by street artists Inkie, Paris and Cheba over the mural next to Melanie Giles; plus music, art exhibitions and a piano bar at the Walcot Chapel, yarn bombing and other decoration and artisan workshops and demonstrations throughout the weekend.’
