Prepare to be delighted by the joyous array of artworks and imagery on display in this final exhibition of the year at No. 1 Royal Crescent in Bath, between 25 November and 17 December.
Throughout 2017, hundreds of visitors including families, community groups and schoolchildren have joined in the celebration of the Royal Crescent’s 250th anniversary.
New Views is a vibrant and exciting showcase of all their imaginative responses, ranging from painting and textiles to drama and photography.
Pieces of silver were created (materials kindly provided by Bath Boules), wall hangings stitched, views from the windows put into words and children created their own play about the Crescent, called Jubilation. It features Elizabeth Linley’s elopement from No. 11 and a dramatic duel, enjoyed by the Mayor of Bath and parents who watched the performance.
