We use this list to send you details about our annual festival (this includes information about how to participate, or put a show into the festival, as well as just about what to see) We email an average of once a month, except in the run-up to the festival when there's more to say in news and more recommendations. We occasionally include information about other events which we think you might find interesting, but we do not and will never share our list with other organisations, allow others to analyse data, sell names, etc. We ask for a postcode because it helps us to know where audiences come from, and it's possible that some information may be more useful to people in the immediate locality.

You can unsubscribe via the link on every mailing you will get from us (including one you will receive in just a moment to confirm that you're on the list).

The Milk Float Stage

‘The Milk Float Stage’ is a solar powered mobile music stage, run by singer-songwriter Paul Thompson. Paul gained a Guinness World record with his eco-float (named Bluebell!), after touring from Norfolk to the Edinburgh Fringe and back…at 10mph!!

Paul’s latest venture is the creation of ‘Milk Float TV’ with fellow Bath Spa University MA Songwriter, Andy Jones. MFTV features music sessions, live gigs and interviews with songwriters, all from the back of Bluebell.

The Milk Float Stage will be showcasing some of the fabulous students from Bath Spa’s Commercial Music and Songwriting MA courses, as well as filming some ‘Bedlam Specials’ for MFTV. Come and experience some great moo-sic, once floated, never forgotten!
