Embankment in Bedford on Tuesday 29th November and this year’s
event promises to once again provide a fantastic start to the
Christmas festivities in Bedford town centre.
The festivities start from 7pm with fireworks set to music along
the River Great Ouse. This year’s show is Aladdin themed but
further details on what we can expect from the show are being kept
