Creative Bath is the hub for local creatives, giving you the latest news, jobs and events all in one place. We promote and support the creative companies, professionals and students in and around Bath. It’s a great way for local creatives to stay in touch and learn of new opportunities.

And we don’t stop there. Creative Bath is also a fully functioning social networking site where you can create your own profile page, post your own news, jobs, events and create a profile for your professional work too. You can visit the directory to search individuals, freelancers, companies and organisations; visit the job page to see who’s hiring locally; visit the events page to get involved and learn something new or drop by the noticeboard and check out the latest news.

We also have a newsletter for you to sign up to. Our newsletter keeps you updated on what’s happening with news and upcoming events.

About Creative Bath

Creative Bath is a Community Interest Company (CIC), meaning any profit we make gets put straight back into the company. It was founded in 2008 by Greg Ingham, Chief Executive of MediaClash (formerly CEO of Future Publishing) and Rhodri Samuel (then of B&NEs, now of Dartington). We’re backed with funding and support by B&NES. The aim of the game is to bring together the local creative community, support it and help it grow. We lobby hard to raise the profile of the sector with the Council, city leaders and the wider business community – we act as a link between the creative sector and schools, colleges and universities.

Our activities are overseen by a steering group including B&NES observers, and meets quarterly to give independent governance and advice. They are:

  • Greg Ingham – Chair
  • Dulcie Carey – Development Manager
  • John Wilkinson – (B&NES)
  • Anna Garner – (B&NES)
  • Holly Tarquini – (Bath Film Festival)
  • Dave Kelly – (Storm Consultancy)
  • Chris Kemp – (Suited & Booted)
  • Peter Whitehead – (Radio)
  • Paul Newman – (Future)
  • Anita Taylor  (Bath Spa University)

Creative Bath is free to join – and the way we see it, if you think you’re creative then you probably are. Our members include not only people from film, music, publishing, new media, and theatre backgrounds, but also architects, coders, artists, writers, designers, IP lawyers, developers, furniture makers, festivals, SEO specialists, event organisers, engineers, PR, performing arts, speech coaches... and the list goes on!

Creative Bath is here to support you and to give you what you tell us you need. We continue to evolve over time in response to your feedback and the outcome of our meetings.

  • Bring together the inspiring, independent creative people and businesses of Bath and its surrounding area
