Shared Parties

Our dedicated event teams at Bath’s Historic Venues and Searcys really know the recipe for a great event which is why our shared parties always sell out! 

A combination of breath-taking venues, delicious food and the best in live music and entertainment make for an unforgettable evening.

Shared party nights at the Roman Baths take place during December and January and are always a colourful and fun-filled affair with a sparkling drinks reception around the Great Bath followed by dinner, dancing and the option to have a drink at the bar.  If live music and dancing are more your thing, Christmas Rocks at the Assembly Rooms is a must!  With a festive drink on arrival, street food feasting, live band and DJ, this is an exhilarating evening to get you set for Christmas.


Shared party tickets are available from our caterers Searcys.

Please contact our team to discuss your party vision and we will put a tailored package together for you.

Roman Baths & Pump Room

The Roman Baths have an especially lovely quality at Christmas. The cold weather may mean your guests need to wrap up warm, but there is nothing quite like enjoying a glass of mulled wine or prosecco beside the steaming waters of the Great Bath. Your guests may gather on the ancient paving, perhaps enjoying some nibbles or canapes, before moving on to the Terrace or the Pump Room.

The Pump Room is a stunning option for a Christmas event. With three magnificent Christmas trees on the balcony, twinkling candles and the chandelier dimmed, it feels festive as soon as you enter the room. Alternatively, if you are looking for more informal or intimate Christmas celebrations, the Terrace and adjoining and Reception Hall, offer flexible space for a party or small dinner.

If you are planning a much larger Christmas event, you can use the entire venue!

  • Suitable for 40 – 300 guests
  • Formal or informal dining options
  • Licensed until 1am
