BATH BID LAUNCHES BATH AT CHRISTMAS ART COMPETITION

The Bath BID, in conjunction with Minuteman Press Bath, will fill the streets of Bath this festive season with a parade of two-metre-high giant ‘bunting’ flags made from the artwork and designs of local people, inspiring everyone to rediscover the magic of Bath at Christmas.

In a competition open to everyone who lives or works in Bath and North East Somerset, up to 24 designs created by the community will be reproduced as a rainbow of art hanging from lamppost pennants in the streets of the city.

Entrants will be separated into four categories, Under Ten, Under 21, Over 21 and Business, and all winners and runners-up, in addition to other selected entrants, will have their work displayed from 16th November until the end of December. The organisers will invite the public to get involved in voting for their champions on the Bath BID’s social media channels, and category winners and runners-up will receive gift vouchers from the Bath Gift Card.

Bath BID CEO, Allison Herbert, said: “Following the success of our Bounce Back Bath Art Competition this summer, we are delighted to be showcasing local artists’ work around the city centre once again. This time, we’re opening up the competition to businesses, who can submit a piece of artwork that represents their festive offering – a great teambuilding activity!

“This is just one of a number of safe, socially distant, joyful events set to take place in the city this Christmas. We can’t wait for people to come along and see their own artwork on display.

“Anyone is welcome to send in a design using any medium and any style they like, abstract or realistic, digital, watercolour, collage, whatever they wish. We are looking for bright, festive designs to welcome people into the city. We will be showing the artwork online and then flying the flags high in the city streets as part of the magical Bath at Christmas.”

David Dixon, Director of Marketing at Minuteman Press Bath, said: “Here at Minuteman Press, we believe that it is more important than ever to stop and reflect on what for many has been a difficult year. We deserve a little joy this Christmas more than any other, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with some joyful art for all to enjoy on our streets.”
