Bedford Exchanges: have your say on art & culture in Bedford

At Clanger HQ we are passionate about the importance of art and culture in our town, so we are thrilled to be part of the Bedford Exchanges project.  And you can be part of it too…

Your views are invited on how #Arts and #Culture can help #Bedford Borough become a place where there are even more opportunities for people, communities, and business to get involved, grow and realise their potential.

Bedford Borough Council have secured investment from Arts Council England, for a team led by The Higgins to consult with local people at events, on social media and through an online survey.  We want to know what you think about the importance of art and culture in our society and in our town.

You can find out more information about the project on our website, and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.  Take part in our online survey here:

Bedford Exchanges events will be held at The Higgins on Tuesday 6th June and Thursday 14th June at the Place Theatre. There will be a 90 minute session starting at 5:30pm – booking link at

Please arrive 15 minutes before the start for refreshments so that we can start promptly. Many thanks


More information will be available via email and social media in the coming days and we would urge you to share this widely with your networks and with individuals and organisations who you believe will want to take part in this work.

Thank you and welcome to the conversation
