From CULTURE & MUSIC Bath International Music Festival
20 May - 29 May Bath: One of Britain's most prestigious music festivals is also one of its most eclectic, presenting a mix of classical, contemporary, jazz, world, electronica and folk music.

For over 60 years, the Bath Music Festival has looked to both the past and the future with its broad scope of musical styles.

Performances are hosted in a wide variety of beautiful historic venues within Somerset's historic city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was founded as Aquae Sulis, location of a Roman baths and temple, and later became a Georgian spa resort (its famous crescents date from this time).

These venues include Bath Abbey, a former Benedictine monastery where Edgar was crowned King in the 10th century, the Pump Rooms (a neo-classical salon within the redeveloped baths) and the Assembly Rooms, National Trust-owned public spaces used for fashionable functions in the 18th century.

Highlights in 2011 embraced Ute Lemper, a Brecht and Weill Night, the Soweto Kinch Quartet, Billy Bragg, Alina Ibragimova, Diana Baroni, and chances to explore the ritual world of Russian Orthodox weddings, the poetic virtoisity of Celtic music and the sultry and impulsive nature of Latin-inspired music.
