On 29 June – 2 July 2017 Forest of Imagination will take root in Bath for its fourth year. 

Last year we transformed the spaces around and inside Bath Abbey into a fantastical new world and welcomed over 10,000 visitors!

This year we are creatively linking the urban edge of Bath to the prehistoric National Trust meadow of Bushey Norwood.

Come and play!

Last year’s event attracted over 10,000 visitors, united by curiosity and a playful spirit. This year, join us at Bushey Norwood for an exciting programme of artworks, outdoor theatre, sensory installations and participatory creative activities.
