FREE Workshop: Creating Our World
Bath Meditation Group
2pm - 4pm

Our thoughts are the base upon which our inner world is created. When we learn to understand and master our thoughts, we take control of our inner world. This helps us to respond to people and situations in a more positive way. When our inner world is in harmony, we naturally promote harmony in the world around us.

This workshop presents an opportunity to acquire some practical methods to develop the art of thinking.

It will be facilitated by Michael McCarron who has a deep interest in spirituality and how it benefits the human condition. He enjoys a positive life balance of work, parenthood and organising and facilitating self-development classes and workshops.

• What to bring
Just yourselves and anyone else you think might be interested

• Important to know
Please be punctual to get the most out of the talk. The event is free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted.

The Simmertones ska / reggae band joint w BBSingles
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group

Hi all buy your own ticket from the tunnels website www.thetunnelsbristol.co.uk
and meet inside. I'll put my number on the site closer to the time.

Simmertones are a seasoned nine-piece authentic ska and reggae band from the southwest of the UK who regularly get packed venues and festivals jumping with their exciting and infectious live sound. In 2016 The Simmertones' live shows reach new heights, with prestigious slots at the London International Ska Festival and Madness' House of Fun Weekender. It also saw the release of the poignant & topical single ‘Run For Your Life’, which has picked up regular international airplay and showcases the evolving strength and depth of the bands song writing. The Simmertones’ previous biggest hit to date was a cool cover version of the well-known classic 'Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps' (which contains samples of 'Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps' by Doris Day under licence from Sony Music Entertainment). This was hugely successful for the band, with repeated airplay on BBC radio stations. In particular, Steve Lamacq added the song to his playlist and gave it several airings, including prime time airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music. Further airplay was attained in the United States and internationally.

Bath Girls' Night Out Meetup
7:30pm - 10:30pm

PLEASE NOTE THIS HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO A FAMILY EMERGENCY My mobile no. [masked] feel free to call or text and also I hope you won’t mind but the dinner will be £5. Just a small contribution so I can afford to have everyone here. Water, wine, juice and pop will also be welcome. Hi everyone! New timers, Old timers and Fun timers.......
I’m really having a great time meeting people and forging friendships with such intelligent, successful and warm girls, I do hope you all are too!
At the end of the month on a Saturday night, I would be delighted to entertain at my home.
There is space for around 25-30 people, (not all seated) and if it’s agreeable could everyone bring a bottle of wine, and or a soft drink then I will be delighted to supply all the food like a buffet. At the moment I am thinking of serving Salmon of some sort, salad and new potatoes and a dessert probably a cake from Patisserie Valerie. When RSVPing would you be so kind as to communicate and tell me if you would like dinner as well - that way I won’t buy too much food. Just to blow my own horn, not to worry- I’m a pretty good cook! If I do say so myself!😁

I live in Central Bath in a ground floor flat at: 14, flat A, Camden Crescent, Lansdown, BA1 5HY.
For those who might be taking a train into Bath, there are buses 6 & 7 (at the main bus station next door to the train) which will drop you off literally, outside my flat (I can see the bus stop from my living room window) but if you need any further help/directions/information please let me know. I will say, parking can be tricky. Needing to pay for one’s parking ends at 7pm in this area. If a Saturday isn’t convenient and people would rather it be on a Friday/Saturday the first week in March, I welcome all feedback and suggestions. After all “Central Bath Girl’s Night Out & Bath Girls Night Out” is all of ours to enjoy and hopefully meet a new bestie or two! Lots of love Victoria 🍾🍾🍾

Long Running Events:

Ethel and Ernest
23rd February - 9th March

The story is simply a progression through the lives of the titular couple, from their courtship in the late 1920s to their deaths in 1971. Ethel is a lady's maid with middle-class aspirations and firm notions of respectable English behaviour; she becomes a housewife when she marries. Ernest, five years younger, is an easygoing milkman with socialist ideals and an enthusiastic interest in modern progress and technology. They live with their only child, Raymond, in a London suburb, through the Great Depression, World War II, the advent of television and other events. The story richly illustrates London working-class life and concerns, during some of the most momentous social and political developments of the 20th century.The book was turned into the feature-length hand-drawn animated film Ethel & Ernest, voiced by Brenda Blethyn, Jim Broadbent and others.
Listening Booth Tour: Bath | Rebellious Sounds Archive
23rd February - 16th March

Rebellious Sounds Archive at No 1 Royal Crescent, Bath: 23rd February - 16th March
Dreadnought South West have commissioned the design and build of a very special mobile exhibition space. Known as the Listening Booth, it is deliberately designed to look like a voting booth to remind users of the centenary of the right to vote for some women. Excerpts from the oral histories collected for the Rebellious Sounds Archive have been loaded on to interactive voting cards. Listeners put on a pair of headphones and choose a voting card to place in the slot; this will play their chosen story of women's activism.
Head along to a venue near you (host locations will be listed here as they are confirmed). 
Join us at No 1 Royal Crescent on International Women's Day, 8th March, for a protest poster-making workshop. Email carment.dreadnoughtsw@gmail.com if you are interested in attending.

Pencil To Paint: Feb - Mar 2018
21st February - 28th March

“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
Topics will include:
Line, measurement and proportion
Tonal value
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  21, 28 February; 7, 14, 21, 28 March 2018

Exploring What Matters is a secular, science-based course for people who want to learn how to live happily and spread happiness to those around them.
It was created by the Action for Happiness charity to help people tune in to what really matters in life, connect with people around them and find small ways to start taking action.
On the course you will:

Meet with like-minded people to explore what really matters in life and find new ways of looking at things.

Enjoy expert videos, mindfulness exercises and a handbook full of resources to help you break big ideas into manageable chunks.

Take time each week to think of small actions you can take to create happiness for yourself and those around you.

People find it really valuable and often refer to what they learn on the course as life-changing.
-- Click here to see the impact of the course and what people say about it --
Each week is based around a big question:
Week 1: What really matters in life? We'll explore whether a greater focus on happiness and wellbeing might be better for all of us.
Week 2: What actually makes us happy? We'll explore the role of outer circumstances and inner attitudes in our wellbeing.
Week 3: Can we find peace of mind? We'll explore some of the skills and practices that can help us in difficult times.
Week 4: How should we treat others? We'll explore how to treat others and how we can become more compassionate.
Week 5: What makes for great relationships? We'll explore how our relationship to others impacts our own happiness.
Week 6: Can we be happier at work? We'll explore what makes us happy at work and what can we do about it.
Week 7: Can we build happier communities? We'll explore how to create communities that are more caring, connected and happy.
Week 8: How can we create a happier world? We'll explore how to live in a way that contributes to a happier world, not just for ourselves but for others too.
-- Click here for a sample of Week 1 to give you an idea of what it’s like --
This course is for anyone interested in exploring how to create happiness for themselves or others.
Maybe you’re someone who could do with some new approaches to try out in your own life.
Or maybe you’re passionate about creating happier communities and a happier world.
Either way, by coming together with others locally on this course you can find the inspiration and support you need find the actions that work for you.
Please note: this course is not group therapy, if you are experiencing severe challenges at the moment we recommend seeking alternative professional support.

The course is run by keen volunteers who are stepping forward to help spread happiness in the local area.
Everyone who joins the course makes a donation of their choice to be there.
It costs Action for Happiness about £90 per person to support each course so we ask all participants to give whatever they can to support themselves and others.
You can give as Supporter (£120) or give the Standard (£90) if you are able, otherwise please give whatever donation works for you - even if you can only give £5 right now you’re as welcome as anyone else :)

What are the highlights of the course?
“Sharing and learning from each other allowed us space to grow and taking away action plans each week focused our minds on pro active action.” ~ Jacqueline, London
“More or less everything is a highlight as it is mightily well researched and factual.” ~ Annick, Lindfield
“Being able to believe that I could be brave enough to change my circumstances/life, in order to be happier/make others happier around me.” ~ Michelle, Farnborough
