Full House Theatre are premiering their brand new show in Queens Park this half term, celebrating everything that makes Bedford such a vibrant and diverse town.

Who is Bedford? is an interactive show exploring the heritage of Bedford and the people who live here.

Its debut performance will be at the Queens Park Community Centre on Wednesday 13 February at 2pm. There’s no need to book, simply turn up (first come, first served) and pay what you feel.

With over 50 ethnicities represented in the town, Bedford is one of the most culturally diverse towns of its size in the UK.  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.

Who is Bedford? will tour Bedford’s schools and community spaces between February – June 2019, including Queen’s Park Community Centre and The Higgins Museum. Schools can contact Full House Theatre to book a show in their school.
