Bath College will be heading to Peasedown St John’s biggest annual event to help the community find something they’d love to learn.
The College, which has campuses in Bath and Somer Valley, is an official event partner at Peasedown Party in the Park on Saturday, June 13.
Staff will be at the all-day music festival as part of the launch of the new range of Love2learn courses at the Somer Valley Campus in Westfield (formerly Norton Radstock College).
The wide-range of one-day and short courses encourage people of all ages to learn something new. Courses on offer include art, printmaking, dog grooming, creative writing and an introduction to horticulture.
The merger of Bath College and Norton Radstock College opens up many opportunities to people across Bath and North East Somerset, with an even wider range of courses in more subjects.
Bath College Principal Matt Atkinson said: “We pride ourselves on being a College at the heart of the community as we are very responsive to the communities we serve.
“Peasedown Party in the Park is a popular summer event known to bring the community together, so it’s the perfect place to launch our Love2learn provision at Somer Valley.
“We have lots of part-time courses starting in September, many of them in the evening and at weekends to fit around people’s busy lifestyles.
“With so much live music and entertainment, Peasedown Party in the Park is a great family day-out for the people of Peasedown and beyond.
“We’re proud to be supporting an event that is getting bigger and better each year and we’re very much looking forward to helping to strengthen the community spirit on the big day. We’ll see you there!”
Peasedown Party in the Park attracts up to 3,000 people and is now in its 7th year.
The village’s festival includes seven and a half hours of live music, including Bath Spa Brass Band, The Rockerteers and ex Bath College music students Too Much Lipstick.
There will also be lots of family attractions, quad bikes, a gladiator joust, food and drinks, stalls and Peasedown’s first Great Village Bake Off with celebrity baker Richard Bertinet, inspired by the BBC’s popular Great British Bake Off.
The festival’s chairman, Nathan Hartley, said: “Every year we have some of the very best organisations sponsoring and supporting our Peasedown festival – and this year is no different.
“We are absolutely thrilled that Bath College, which now runs courses in the Somer Valley as well as the city of bath, is a big part of our 7th festival.
“The festival team is extremely grateful for Matt Atkinson and the rest of the College’s support. I hope this new partnership will last long into the future.”
Everyone is invited to Peasedown Party in the Park on Beacon Field on Saturday, June 13, from 11.30am to 7pm.
