JACOBS WELLS BATHS – Six more month of dance, theatre and performance
Contact: Jacob Wells Baths Centre
Artspace Lifespace remain at the Baths while the plans for the building are determined.
Following a cabinet decision to pass the Baths on to Fusion Lifestyle, it was expected that the lease at Jacobs Wells Baths would be completed by March 2018, subject to the council receiving an acceptable and sustainable full business plan, with essential repairs to be undertaken within six months. While Fusion finalise their ambitious plans to restore the building, the Council has asked Artspace Lifespace to manage the building until October 2018. A fund from Quartet enabled Artspace Lifespace to keep the Baths running throughout winter and we can now look forward to a final summer of performance at the former dance centre.
Making their UK debut at Jacobs Wells Baths as part of Mayfest, Contact Gonzo bring their unique, playful, jaw-dropping physical style to Bristol on the 12th and 13th May. The Baths is also hosting Emily-Souter Johnson develop her show Polyester as she gets ready for her autumn tour. Jacobs Wells Baths is now open for bookings until October 2018.
