Our Culture Club is an exciting monthly scheme that allows members to meet and socialise while expanding their interest base through visiting museums, historical sites and local points of interest.

The club also welcomes speakers and indulges in other cultural activities like going to the theatre.

Visit to The Bath Fashion Museum: Perhaps you have already visited this iconic Bath museum, but we are going to view it with fresh eyes and spend time looking around the “Royal Women” exhibition. The exhibition features dresses and designs worn by Queen Alexandra, Queen Mary, the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret. The unique designs are on loan from The Queen and each tells a different story!
Entry into the museum is FREE with a resident’s “Discovery Card”, otherwise the cost is £8.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for future Culture Club meetings, want to book your place or to make enquiries, please speak to Ketyn or call 01225 484510 / active@ageukbanes.co.uk
