Bath Takeover on Milsom Street | Festival of Nature 2024

Saturday 8 June, 11 am - 5 pm

Milsom Street, Bath

Suitable for all ages

Festival of Nature is returning to Bath City Centre - and greening up Milsom Street! 

Come down to Bath’s grand high street for an exciting day of free family-friendly nature stalls, special guest talks and shows, drop-in interactive activities, storytelling, crafts and more.

There will be lots of opportunities to learn about the natural world and how you can help it flourish, with a host of local and national organisations all along Milsom Street.

In addition to the activities along Milsom Street, check out our Talks and Performances Programme at the nearby Bath Assembly Rooms.

Bath Central Library on Milsom Street - Nature Themed Fun

Join the Bath and North East Somerset Libraries Team for nature themed story times and crafting activities. Chat to the team about your nearest library, becoming a member and what’s on offer.

Visit the stall to collect a library-based nature trail. Perfect for tiny explorers!

Festivals are busy places- so if you are feeling overwhelmed, need a sit down or somewhere quiet, visit Bath Central Library. Our free Sensory space will be open 10am - 4pm for drop ins - book through a member of staff.
