This website provides an introduction to the role and function of the Mayor of Bath and the rich history that surrounds this ceremonial position.

The Mayor plays a significant ambassadorial role within the City, including welcoming visitors and maintaining links with international partners. The Mayoralty is separate from the Council and has no political power.

The current Mayor, Councillor Cherry Beath (pictured), was elected to office at the annual Mayor Making ceremony held in Bath Abbey on 7 June 2014.
