22nd – 24th February 2013, Bedford
A weekend of art made in Bedford
Experience magical night time light projections, take part in animated discussions, and visit our pop up cinema to see films made in Bedford. Become a walking musical instrument in our new interactive sound installation, or drink tea, take a walk with us and find out more about how afternoon tea started in Bedfordshire. Come and hear the Concerto Magnificent, a concert of new music with words written by you, the people of Bedford. Look up for our new High Street installation and look out for our Town Crier!
All of this has been fueled by unique contributions from those who have taken part in our projects; you, your friends and your neighbours.
Look out for our Festival Hub in Bedford’s market. Open all weekend, the hub is your main point of information about the festival. Pick up event times, book onto ticketed events, or just have a chat with us about your festival experiences.
On Saturday we will be bringing Town Crying back to Bedford after a lapse of over a century. Our Town Crier will be roaming the streets of Bedford sharing the latest information about festival events and activities.
Spot the artist! Throughout the Weekend a team of local artists lead by Kristian Purcell will be sketching events as they happen.
