The Roman Baths, Fashion Museum and Victoria Art Gallery will host a series of fun, festive activities for families this Christmas.

Young visitors can have a go at making Christmas cards and gift tags, creating sparkly decorations, and making Roman Baths-themed fridge magnets. They can also admire the Victoria Art Gallery’s decorated tree and enjoy a festive afternoon tea at the Pump Room Restaurant.

Cllr Patrick Anketell-Jones (Conservative, Lansdown), Cabinet Member for Economic Development at Bath & North East Somerset Council, said: “The Roman Baths, Fashion Museum and Victoria Art Gallery are great places for families to visit over the Christmas holidays. Local residents can explore the museums and enjoy all of the special Christmas activities for free with a Discovery Card.”

The three Bath & North East Somerset Council-run venues offer local residents with a Discovery Card free admission for themselves and up to two children. Discovery Card holders can also enjoy 10% off at the Pump Room Restaurant.

Children must be accompanied by an adult at all events.
