Barbarella's Bang Bang

Strikingly theatrical take on that old Gipsy Cabaret style, still coming up with new spins of the wheel since the 19th Century. A clear vision of what they want to say and the musical ability to make it work. Will appeal to Euro intellectuals, goths and plain ol' weirdoes

Street Performers' Party

Bedlam - The Night Out

The Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band, Avanti Display, and more...

After a busy day on the streets of Bath what we all need is a bit of a party to recharge the batteries for tomorrow. Highlight shows from some of this afternoon's key performers, a work-in-progress from the legendary Avanti, Indian Brass madness from the very watchable (and still more danceable) Rajasthan Heritage crew, then on into the night with Indian-into-Worldbeat DJ Desi Heights inside the Brasserie.
