Arts Flash Sale for Bristol extends to Bath
Bristol’s biggest music, theatre and art venues will again unite to offer discounted tickets in a 24-hour flash sale this Thursday (19 January) from 10am.
For the first time, the initiative has extended into Bath offering residents and visitors the opportunity to discover new experiences and venues at a fraction of the price.
Venues and organisations participating in the January Flash Sale include St George’s Bristol, Colston Hall, Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, M Shed, Bristol Old Vic, Tobacco Factory Theatres, Spike Island, The Bath Festival, Bristol Cathedral, Asian Arts Agency, In Between Time Bristol International Festival, Bristol Hippodrome, Watershed, A Handful of Singers at St John’s Church, Bath Philharmonia at the Assembly Rooms, Bath Spa Live, Fashion Museum Bath and Bath Choral Society.
This is the sixth time Bristol’s cultural venues have come together and joined the camaraderie of January sales, usually reserved for retail hot spots.
Visitors to both cities can also make their money go further and discover more cultural highlights in Bristol and Bath with a short break.
Flash sale offers will be promoted through various Twitter feeds, using the hashtag #flashtag as well as individual venue and organisation websites. Highlights include:
Tania Smith, Ticketing and Sales Officer for St George’s Bristol, said: “This flash sale offers a great opportunity for people to explore the arts and culture scene in Bristol and Bath.”
Becky Molloy, Box Office Manager for Bath Box Office said: “As a bespoke ticketing agency located in the heart of Bath, we are fully supporting this flash sale.
“Every penny spent on ticket purchases through Bath Box Office supports arts activities, venues and theatre companies in the local area. Buy local and support the arts!”
Martin Pople, Manager of Bristol and Bath Cultural Destinations Project, said: “We want to encourage residents and visitors to explore more of both cities. When it comes to arts and events, Bristol and Bath are an unbeatable combination with so much to offer. From the Roman Baths to Banksy, from heritage to the hip and happening, there is something appealing for everyone. “For the first time the flash sale now includes Bath and we are looking forward to other two city initiatives to boost culture and tourism in the future.”
