Come and explore the world of Georgian entertainments at the Holburne for our Museums at Night evening, part of Party in the City, the biggest free event in Bath celebrating the opening of the Bath International Music Festival.
Step back in time to the age of gambling and scandal by trying your hand at some card games set against the backdrop of our stunning picture gallery, or else enjoy some Georgian outdoor games such as badminton, croquet or game of graces.
The evening will be opened by a repertoire from the talented Bath Minuet Company as well as regular musical performances throughout the night. Don't miss the opening performance at 6.30pm in the Picture Gallery and Georgian card games from 7 to 9pm.
The cafe will also be open all evening with refreshments for sale and the performances below.
