Bath Fringe Festival Films, June 2019

The Museum is participating in the Bath Fringe Festival by showing two films of local interest. Filmed near Bath, they feature local people involved in the ‘youth culture’ of the 1960s and will blow your socks off!

Venue:The Museum of Bath at Work, Julian Rd, Bath

Bored young rebels, living for kicks’ so reads the description of this early 1960s musical made and filmed in Bristol. With a swathe of British character actors – David Hemmings, Angela Douglas, Harry H Corbett and Kenneth More all attempting Bristolian accents. See teenagers fall off motorbikes in the Clifton Gorge and complain about missing a bus at the Hippodrome. Has to be seen to be believed. 

Introduced by Museum Director Stuart Burroughs.

Glastonbury Fayre - A Bath Fringe Film
Film:Glastonbury Fayre (1971)
Date & time:Saturday, 1 June 2019, 19:30
Venue: The Museum of Bath at Work, Julian Rd, Bath
Admission:£5.00
Length:1 hr 27 min

On the subject of something having to be seen to be believed this classic film chronicles the first ever Glastonbury Festival. Made by famous director Nic Roeg, the contrast with the modern ‘glamping’ Glastonbury Festival is quite astonishing. In 1971 the several hundred attending put up with minimal facilities, rain and a succession of performers with no clothes on. Do not miss it. Features nudity.

Introduced by Museum Director Stuart Burroughs.
