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.
