Festival - If you're the sort of person who owns a leather satchel, scorns chart music, and interrupts episodes of Celebrity Big Brother to deliver grumpy monologues about the state of the nation, then you will probably fancy the Bath International Music Festival (May 21 - June 7)
FestivalIf you're the sort of person who owns a leather satchel, scorns chart music, and interrupts episodes of Celebrity Big Brother to deliver grumpy monologues about the state of the nation, then you will probably fancy the Bath International Music Festival (May 21 - June 7).

It's an event exclusively dedicated to chaps like you, corduroy-clad curmudgeons who cold shoulder popular music; that is music with a tune and a passing relevance to modern life. And choose instead jazz, folk, roots, electronica, classical and anything else you feel raises you above the grubby herd.

As well as performances from the likes of Horses Brawl (violin-strumming folk), Ffynnon (Celtic folk) and Kathryn Tickell (Northumbrian smallpipe-playing folk), you will be treated to exhibitions such as: "On the edge of life", which is billed as "a multifaceted experience, focusing on issues of homelessness and rootlessness".

Tickets can be booked via the website and range from free to around pound;15. Enjoy. Or if you can't manage that, just scratch your beard appreciatively.
