A new logo for the BathTub Orchestra

We would like to thank Mytton Williams , a local brand and design agency based in the historic city of Bath, for designing a new brand and logo for the BathTub Orchestra. They created a professional design brief which identified key traits of the orchestra to include in the new logo, and provided us with three options. After a short discussion with part of the orchestra, we gave them feedback and they quickly made a few small tweaks. We are very happy with the end result. We've already started using the new logo on this website, social media, and posters that you may have seen around town. We've also bought a new banner featuring the logo which you'll see at our next gig at Bath Vegan Festival this Saturday at noon. It also folds up really small! We are the BathTub Orchestra, a friendly community orchestra in Bath that plays everything from pop songs to classical favourites.

A fun musical adventure with Ramshackle Orchestra

It was a fun musical adventure with Ramshackle Orchestra at Christchurch Bath, as we explored a range of genres and styles. From Stevie Wonder’s soulful Living For The City to David Guetta’s catchy Titanium, we kept the audience on their toes with our eclectic set list. We also showed off our skills in jazz, blues, rock and classical music, with tunes like Chameleon, Universal, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and We Have All the Time in the World. And of course, we couldn’t resist adding some movie magic with themes from Once Upon a Time in the West, The Last of the Mohicans, Pirates of the Caribbean and Mission Impossible. We ended the night with a bang, playing Sweet Dreams by Eurythmics and getting everyone to tap along. We are so grateful to the Ramshackle Orchestra for inviting us to join them for this concert. They are a fantastic group of musicians who share our passion for making music accessible and enjoyable for everyone. We loved their lively and energetic performance, and w

What a wonderful night we had at our Christmas Concert on Saturday 10th December 2022! We were thrilled to play at the cosy Larkhall URC Church in Bath, and we were so happy to see you all there. You were a fantastic audience and we really appreciate your generosity and cheer! We would also like to thank the Humbugs, a wonderful local group who performed with us. We played a festive and varied set list, featuring some of our favourite tunes from different genres and eras. We started with a bang with the James Bond theme On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, followed by the catchy Stop the Cavalry. Then we slowed things down with the beautiful Adagio di Natale, a piece all arranged by our very own conductor, and the classic Driving Home for Christmas. Next, we played The Lighthouse Keeper followed by Walking in the Air, the haunting melody from The Snowman. We then switched to a baroque style with Largo ‘La Pioggia’, a movement from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. We ended the first half with a sere

We played in the Bath Carnival!

Greetings, music lovers! We want to share with you our awesome adventure at the Bath Carnival on Saturday 9th July 2022. It was a day full of joy and excitement and we can’t wait to tell you all about it. We played a mix of songs that showcased our versatility and our fun-loving spirit. We started with Titanium by Sia, a powerful anthem that got everyone pumped up. Then we switched to I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston, a classic pop tune that made everyone want to join us. Next, we added some reggae vibes with I Shot the Sheriff by Bob Marley, a song that always makes us feel groovy. Finally, we ended with Hey Ya by Outkast, a catchy and upbeat song that had everyone shaking it like a Polaroid picture. And then we did it all over again! We are so grateful to the Bath Carnival for inviting us to play and to all the people who came to support us. We had so much fun and we hope you did too. We are always looking for new members and new songs to play, so if you are interested
