“Bath Carnival is a highlight in the PQA Bath performance calendar. We absolutely love taking part in this truly fabulous community event. The whole day is so much fun from start to finish, all of our students come away smiling and more confident. Thank you for everything you do for our community, we can not wait for 2020!”
— Lucy Payne, Principal of Pauline Quirk Academy For Performing Arts

Costume Hire


We love seeing our costumes getting out on the road and being enjoyed by a live audience and every single costume is available to hire on the day of Bath Carnival. Costumes can be hired individually or as a group and all funds raised go into their maintenance, repair and amendments.

Choose from our amazing collection of costumes and join the parade on Saturday 21 July. Perfect for hen parties and stag do’s, office outings and birthdays.
