All-American Summer Party

2 July 2023 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm


Join us for a fun day out celebrating American Independence Day with a backdrop of stunning views across the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and our award-winning gardens. Enjoy an exciting range of live music, with country line dancing by Blazing Saddles, world-class, 5-string banjo trio Leon Hunt, Latino music from Los Musicos, and more. We will have a KidzFun zone, classic American cars on display and delicious American food and drink options. Visitors can explore the Museum’s collections in the Manor House and it will also be the final chance to see our popular America in Crisis exhibition from the Saatchi Gallery.

Things you need to know:

Access to the grounds from 10am when doors open, music will start from 11am. The event will end 5:45pm and all visitors must exit by 6pm. Please note that the Manor House will only be open from 11am-4pm and the special exhibition gallery from 10am-5pm.

Members come for free and do not need to pre-book a ticket, non-members need to purchase a museum and gardens or gardens only ticket available via Eventbrite.

Additional parking is available with pay and display at the University of Bath which is a 15-minute walk from the museum. The museum is also accessible from the centre of Bath via First Bus.
