Your local ticket agent for the best events in Bath
From chamber choirs to KT Tunstall and Valentine's Balls to Beethoven, share the love this February with a ticket to one of these fantastic local events.
The Handful Chamber Choir - Revolution
The Handful invite you to join them for an evening of politically-charged, impassioned and thought-provoking choral music from the Baroque period through to the present day. Works by Shostakovich, Britten, Holst, McDowall, Dove, Vaughan Williams, Pearsall and Mauersberger create a colourful and exhilarating programme.
Advance, Democracy! is a piece of unabashed political propaganda by Britten, who along with Shostakovich and Mauersberger respond to events that shaped the 20th century. Britten paints a dark picture of the threat of dictatorship if democracy doesn't 'rise up and cry that what our fathers fought for we'll not allow to die'. Although this piece is now rarely performed, it is a real showpiece by Britten.
The Ninth of January from Ten Poems on Texts by Revolutionary Poets by Shostakovich shows a different side to the apparently sardonic composer of the 5th Symphony, or the glitter of his Jazz Suites. These settings of socialist poems are dark, dramatic and at times operatic.
A selection of gorgeous, thought-provoking and reflective pieces by Vaughan Williams, Pearsall and Holst (amongst others) complete this fascinating and varied programme.

St Mary's Church, Bathwick
Bath Symphony Orchestra - Spring Programme
BSO are delighted to be presenting a programme of music on an operatic theme at their Spring Concert in The Roper Theatre.
Wagner’s sumptuous Prelude to Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg opens the evening and is followed by pieces from the orchestral suites from Bizet’s Carmen. We hear highlights that include many of Bizet’s best-loved melodies capturing romance, high drama and exotic Spanish colour.
Our evening concludes with Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony. After seeing a production of Carmen, Tchaikovsky first became obsessed with the idea of Fate controlling Destiny. The Fate motif permeates the symphony, however, joyful dance-like melodies ensure that optimism triumphs over gloom.
7th March 2020, 7.30pm
We are delighted to be selling for a variety of events at Wiltshire Music Centre, including their mini festival, in association with their Young String Quartet in Residence the Marmen Quartet and guest lecturer Katy Hamilton, celebrating the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth. Through a varied programme of events that chart his influence on the genre, they will explore the music, the man, and his place in our time.
This week Empirical and Gwilym Simcock will join forces for a one-off collaboration of WMC Artists in Residence past and present, featuring original music from both of their back catalogues, the evening promises to be a feast for all jazz lovers.
A series of inspiring events celebrating the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth.

The Apex Hotel
Bath Area Trams Conference
Whenever trams/light rail has been re-installed in the UK - Croydon, London's docklands, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield, Newcastle, Nottingham and Blackpool - there is an immediate shift from cars to trams improving congestion, air pollution and general pleasantness, something that has never been achieved with buses alone.
Trams are zero emission and have much lower energy consumption than buses, over the long term offering a cheaper alternative. Buses are cheap to buy but expensive to operate, leading to long service gaps to cram people at bus stops.
If you are interested in discussing these issues further come along to the Bath Area Trams Conference on 8th February, where experts will share their knowledge and experiences on this important topic. A free lunch is provided!
