Over 270 streets have registered to take part in this evening’s Doorstep Carols, a chance for friends and neighbours to share some socially distanced, tier 4-appropriate festive cheer.
At 6pm, streets across the Borough will ring out with Jingle Bells, Deck the Halls and We Wish you a Merry Christmas.
Residents are encouraged to add their own accompaniment with instruments, backing tracks or meticulously rehearsed harmonies.
And please do share your festive photos and films using the hashtag #doorstepcarolsbedford.
There’s still time to take part, you just need to download the PDF which includes song sheets for all three festive tunes.
“We’ve been completely overwhelmed with the number of people registering to take part,” said organiser, Ben Woodfine.
“I originally imagined it might be a few streets in the area where I live, but it’s really gathered momentum.
“We hope everyone enjoys a safe sing-along this evening and wish Bedford Borough residents and Merry Christmas and a happy new year.”
