Who is Bedford? New show for children explores cultural heritage of Bedford

Families in Bedford will be treated to a brand new cultural experience this summer with Who is Bedford? an interactive show exploring the heritage of Bedford and the people who live here.

With over 50 ethnicities represented in the town, Bedford is one of the most culturally diverse towns of its size in the UK. Who is Bedford? is a celebration of everything that makes Bedford the vibrant town it is today. With funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund, Bedfordshire’s Full House Theatre have combined interactive audio technology with real stories, working in partnership with The Higgins Museum for inspiration.

“It has been so exciting to create a show with and for the people of Bedford, our local town. We’ve worked with cultural, religious and heritage groups, as well as the wonderful school children of Bedford, to produce a fun experience that all the family can enjoy”. – Ben Miles and Harriet Hardie, Creative Directors, Full House Theatre.

“An amazing experience. Interactive, clever, engaging and fun.”

“Fantastic experience that was well thought about and incredibly engaging.”

“Show was absolutely brilliant – thank you.”
