MarshFest promises fun for all the family! Here’s a flavour of what entertainment is on offer this year – we’re adding to the list all the time:

Lucy Lost-it

We are absolutely delighted to welcome Lucy Lost It back to MarshFest! She’s entertained us brilliantly for a few years now. Lucy delights crowds with magic shows, circus skills, and balloon modelling, she’s very funny and she always has a rapt audience.

Graffiti specialist Graffarty is run by Steven Fitzpatrick, a professional Graffiti Artist based in Bristol who has been painting graffiti on and off since the late 1980s. 

After a successful outing last time, he’s bringing his show back on the road to MarshFest, so see his amazing demos and spray paint your own graffiti name under his supervision to take home and enjoy for a small cost.

Makery Kate

Award-winning crafter extraordinaire Makery Kate has provided her brilliantly popular hands-on craft materials, offering family-friendly projects to complete on the day.

Zumba with Jess

She was so popular – she’s back again! And this time for everyone to enjoy – we’re delighted to have Zumba with Jess on our main stage! Get up, get moving – it’s perfect for adults and kids. Jess says: “I have been teaching Zumba Fitness in and around Bath for over 15 years. It’s a great workout, both cardio and conditioning and anyone can participate, no matter how old, young , fit or unfit. You do not need dancing experience, just the ability to move and shake what your mumma gave you 😜”.

Games Area

Test your strength with our tug of war. Why not pit yourself against your neighbours and see who triumphs? Or try your hand at our child-friendly archery (no arrows!) as well as classic sports day favourites.
