Whilst we continue to uncover the history and stories of the Bath Assembly Rooms and get ready for a new Georgian experience in 2026, we’ll be offering a range of events for families. These events will give young and the young at heart the opportunity to see the Assembly Rooms whilst taking part in a fun activity.

Planning your family visit to Bath Assembly Rooms

Things are a little different at the Assembly Rooms right now and we’ll only be open for programmed events which might not run every day of the week. Please check the opening times before you travel.

  • Baby-changing facilities are available in the accessible toilet on the ground floor
  • There are currently no food or drinks available to buy onsite

Family-friendly events

The Big Draw - October half-term 21 - 29 Oct

We're joining The Big Draw Festival this October half-term to try and create the longest ever drawing of a minuet. Come to the Ball Room and draw your own character to add to the minuet drawing, or use one of our colouring in sheets. At the end of the week we'll measure to see how big the drawing is. In the late 1700's William Dickinson created 'A Long Minuet as Danced at Bath' which measured 5ft - can we beat it?

Music for Miniatures - 25 Oct

Music for Miniatures is returning to the Tea Room this half-term with a string group. This will be another great opportunity to enjoy music at the Assembly Rooms. Designed for school aged children (ages 4 to 11), the string band will play a number of tunes and at the end there should be time for the kids to have a go. Tickets need to be booked for this event.

Head to our events page for times and prices of all of our events.
