The Roman Baths are set to stay open until 8pm every day over the Easter weekend this year, with live music, entertainment and a prosecco bar planned beside the Great Bath.
Visitors will be able to see the historic site illuminated by flaming torches. There will be live music from Elysium Brass on Monday and Friday, and the Bath Spa Quartet on Saturday and Sunday.
The Natural Theatre Company’s costumed characters will give impromptu performances, and a pop-up bar will serve prosecco and soft drinks. The museum will also remain open for visitors to explore after hours.
Easter Evenings build on the success of the annual Torchlit Summer Evenings, which give summertime visitors a chance to avoid the daytime crowds and soak up the magical atmosphere around the torchlit Great Bath.
Stephen Bird, Head of Heritage Services at Bath & North East Somerset Council, said: “The Roman Baths are wonderfully atmospheric in the evenings, and it’s great that visitors over Easter will be able to stay later and enjoy music and entertainment beside the Great Bath.
“I hope that lots of residents will use their Discovery Cards to come along to Easter Evenings for free.”
Easter Evenings are included in the normal Roman Baths admission price. Entry is free for residents of Bath & North East Somerset with a Discovery Card.
The Roman Baths will be open until 8pm (last admission 7pm) from Friday 19th April to Monday 22nd April 2019.
