2024 Festival daily fashion themes

Every year, photos of Festival-goers resplendent in their Regency finest go viral around the world, and the costumes people parade around beautiful Bath are a huge part of making the Festival the success that it is.

For 2024, we are sharing our costume themes for each day with you nice and early, so that any eager beavers wishing to sew new things have a good amount of sewing time.

Remember- the themes are just for fun!

We’re not going to get Lady Catherine-esque about the placement of gowns. You can join in with them as much or as little as you like, and the themes are chosen carefully so they can be flexible; you can achieve them with a whole new outfit or the judicious application of a ribbon, feather or new button!

Friday 23rd February 2024

We have news of the most exciting sort! Like an excitable younger Bennet sister, we know you are all terribly fond of dancing and eager for us to name the day of our next ball. So, we are very happy to announce that we will be welcoming guests to balls on both weekends of the Festival.

The Natural Theatre Company will be gracing us with their hilarious theatrical walking tour Lost & Found on Saturday 14th, Sunday 15th and Saturday 21st September. We know lots more Austen fans join us for the second weekend of the Festival, and we wanted them to enjoy the hilarity as well!

Furthermore, we know that the Festival Fayre can get a little muslin-crushingly busy (with a lack of Mr Tilneys to help out), so for 2024 we will be opening the Festival Fayre on the first Friday as well as the first Saturday. This should give anyone around in Bath on the afternoon of Friday 13th the chance to grab any last minute additions to their Promenading finery before Saturday.

Tuesday 16th January 2024

All details regarding the 2024 Summer Ball on Saturday 29th June are now available on the Summer Ball Page.
