The lively occasion marks the culmination of

football, basketball, boxing and further outdoor activities.
Individuals are invited to showcase their
talents in either music or sport at the ‘Battle of the Bands’

Peter badge (one of only about 1,000 ever to be awarded).
Jason Foster, Youth Activities Manager, at
Bedford Borough Council said: “Play.live has been hugely successful
and we want to end the programme ‘crescendo’ style. Individuals can
come along, have some fun, and at the same time we will be able to
get our anti-crime message across.”
