John Cleese came to switch on the town's Christmas lights this year - previous random local celebrities who have done the honours include the Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage and the Duchess of Cornwall.
Bath has a lot of really good independent shops including Rossiters, the design led mini department store on Broad Street. The ground floor is filled to the brim with an array of colourful kitchenware, gadgets and gifts and amongst them you can find the Alabasta trays. At the moment they have the Blue Fish trays in the 49cm and 11cm mini tray sizes and the Folk Stripe trays in the 49cm and white 38cm sizes. They had the red 38cm ones too but they have already sold out. Rossiters don't do mail order but Bath is a town worthy of a day trip especially in December - the Christmas Market is on until the 11th.
