Mid Somerset Festival

About

The Mid Somerset Festival was founded in 1902 and has been running continuously ever since – even two World Wars couldn’t stop it – making it one of the oldest festivals in the country.

In the early days it toured the market towns of mid-Somerset, but as it increased in size and scope it eventually settled in the beautiful city of Bath in 1952. It now runs for a full fortnight each March with classes in Creative Writing, Speech & Drama, Music and Musical Theatre. There are two free events to enjoy during the fortnight. A Speech & Drama Concert and the Classical Music Evening.
