Bath’s art galleries, museums and unique venues offer a fascinating range of exhibitions that run throughout the year.
In 1970, inspired by the success of the Arts Lab in London’s Drury Lane, Phil Sheppard set up the Bath Arts Workshop (BAW) in the basement of a house in Lansdown Road, Bath.
The Workshop acted as a venue for poetry readings, arts shows, theatre, music and other kinds of new cultural activity, later moving to Walcot Street.
The Workshop evolved into the Bath Fringe Festival – the second largest cultural festival in the country after the Edinburgh Fringe.
