The Benedictine Bath Festival explores a little-known chapter of Bath’s heritage. A partnership between Downside Abbey, Bath Abbey, and St John’s Hospital, the series offers a range of free and paid-for events throughout the city.

Visitors will be able to visit an exhibition of manuscripts at Bath Abbey, get involved in hands-on activities at St John’s Hospital, listen to Gregorian Chant as part of a traditional service, or relish the chance to explore former Benedictine sites as part of the daily walking tour.
