Country Living Festival

Country Living Festival


Country Living, Britain’s biggest-selling home interest magazine, is launching the first ever Country Living Festival, Bath. This new event will ‘bring the country to the city’ with Country Living magazine coming to life in interactive events taking place on streets and in squares throughout the city centre.

The Festival will bring to life Country Living’s unique blend of country-style interiors, gardens, designers, practical advice, fashion and rural inspiration. At its heart will be a celebration of small rural businesses, talented crafts people, artisans and designers. Bath will become a hub of creativity and rural inspiration with residents and visitors enjoying curated shopping, pop-up workshops, business events, supper clubs, celebrity talks, music, entertainment and an abundance of children’s activities spread throughout the streets and parks of the city. Producers, makers and designers from the West Country and beyond will be showcased in artisan markets, hands-on workshops and shopping events.
