Bath and the Big Issue

Bath Big Issue vendors have become a fixed point in many local people’s lives over the years. In this exhibition, we would like to share with you their day-to-day working lives of the local Big Issue vendors, and their personal journeys.

Since its launch in 1991, the magazine has become a familiar sight in Bath. The award-winning weekly magazine offers hope for homeless and vulnerably housed people across the UK. Vendors buy magazines for £1.25 and sell to the public for £2.50, keeping the difference. In this way, the magazine provides them with the means to earn a legitimate income.

Entry to the exhibition is included with admission to the museum.
