A call for performers to celebrate Christmas together


Bedford Borough Council invites artists, performers, and storytellers of all kinds to share the magic of the Christmas season with our community.

The Borough Council is setting up a performance space in the heart of Harpur Square in Bedford, as well as at the Saxon Centre Square in Kempston.  Performances will take place between 10am – 4pm on the 9th, 16th, and 23rd December. In addition, small grants will be available to cover eligible costs. Whether you are a musician, poet, choir, band, singer, dancer, we want you to be a part of this joyous celebration.

This initiative is made possible by the generous funding from the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

Cllr Spice, Portfolio Holder for Town Centres and Planning, said, “This Programme of Festive Events is a testament to Bedford Borough Council's dedication to fostering community spirit and creating lasting memories for all. We look forward to celebrating together in the heart of our vibrant towns.”
