What we do

We keep our members up-to-date and informed through the following ways:

• Our notice board in the South transept of the Abbey
• Bi-annual mailings of the events programme and booking forms in Spring and Autumn
• An annual report published and distributed each October
• Our pages on the Abbey's website

Some of our events are held in the Abbey and often highlight a particular aspect of the beauty and interest in the Abbey, or the work of the people associated with the Abbey. Examples include a tour by Jeremy Key-Pugh on 'The Memorials within the Abbey' and a presentation on the Footprint Project at the AGM in January 2017.

Some address an aspect of the history in the city or beyond such as a walk round Tudor and Stuart Bath led by our former Chairman Dr John Wroughton and a visit to Number 1 Royal Crescent led by executive committee member Carolyn Hammond.

In addition, we hold a number of social events and day excursions through the year. These are usually well attended and popular with members. Please click here for details of upcoming visits.

Some events are linked to special services within the Abbey such as our Dedication Festival in October. Other events take us further afield such as the Leicester visit and our planned visit to Oxford this year.

We hope that through these events we can provide interest and enjoyment for all ages and keep alive the fellowship between Friends locally.

We welcome visits from Friends from cathedrals and other churches and last year hosted the Friends from Wells, Bristol and Hereford Cathedrals. If your church would like to visit please contact our Visitors Officer, on 01225 303310 or email:

We are delighted when visitors from abroad join us and always like to meet them and make them welcome should they visit Bath again. Just contact the Secretary, Jeremy Key-Pugh, by email in advance of your visit on
