NEXT FESTIVAL SATURDAY 11th AUGUST 2018
The Radford Mill Festival of Rhythm & Blues takes place on Radford Mill Farm in Timsbury near to Bath. It is a really picturesque area featuring traditional English gardens and plants and the pretty Cam Brook running through its grounds. It is a lovely relaxing area to stroll around and enjoy between bands; particularly in the sunshine.
The newly extended Somerset Coal Canal also runs along the farm.
The Bands perform under a large marquee which has the sides lifted for exterior visibility. The Marquee itself is set in a natural amphitheatre which enables the audience to sit outside and enjoy the music should they wish. (In the event of rain, everybody could move under cover). There is good visibility of the bands and the audibility is excellent. When the sun goes down you are warmed by a large log camp fire adding to the atmosphere.
There are camping facilities at the site, so you can even plan a short break around the event and spend time in the inspiring World Heritage City of Bath nearby. At only £5 per person per night, many people take advantage of this and are able to enjoy the famous Radford Mill Big Breakfast.
The food is all freshly homemade with visibility of the kitchens so you can see it being cooked. It is absolutely delicious and uses all home grown organic farm produce wherever possible.
There are plenty of drink options from the bar, including real ales, ciders, freshly squeezed juices and Pimms Cocktails served in the jug.
