Museum Film and Band Performance for Opening Night of Bath Festival Friday May 18th 2018

The Museum of Bath at Work is participating in Bath Festival’s opening night with an excitement packed evening of film and toe tapping live music. Both of these events are free and will be introduced by Museum Director Stuart Burroughs

6 p.m. – 7.30 p.m. ‘Thunderbirds are Go!‘ Rare showing of big screen version of famous television series, from 1966. International Rescue are called in when a manned mission to the planet Mars goes wrong. Wouldn’t you know it? Great stuff including a performance from – ahem- Cliff Richard and the Shadows.  Rockets! Explosions! Puppets!


8 p.m – 8.30 p.m. The Light Brigade. Spindly yet sprightly post-punk jangle, from Bath band formed with a shared interest in chess tournaments, antiques fairs and poetry readings. Like a chamber music recital presented by The Velvet Underground. Great Guitars too.


Museum Seeks Company Secretary

Museum of Bath at Work
Company Secretary

We are a Museum representing the industrial and social history of Bath and are an independent charity run by a Board of Trustees.
We have a range of skills as Trustees – education, engineering, design, museum management and history, in addition to our Treasurer. Our Company Secretary has recently resigned to travel overseas so we are looking for someone who can ensure that we make our returns to the Charity Commission and Companies House in good time and in correct format.
We have recently adopted new Articles of Association.
We meet as a Board 3 times per year and the Company Secretary should attend those meetings to take Minutes; a management group meets monthly and these minutes are issued to all Trustees.
If you are interested in joining a friendly team dedicated to ensure that the Museum maintains its excellent reputation please contact the Chairman, Dr Trevor Turpin
