Following on from last week’s events, Bedford Festival Fringe is at it again. Unfortunately, we don’t have time to list all of them (come on, I’m fitting this in around work and actually having a life!), but here are a few highlights from the days events.
For the kids there is some children’s theatre provided by The Frog’s Chorus. This is their first children’s festival show ‘Big Day Out’. The Frogs’ Chorus has a long history in Bedford and this show brings all the best bits together! It starts at Midday and is free to attend. They are on the Bedrock Stage, which is within walking distance of Bedford station.
Adam Falconer provides the music at a Free Fringe event. From builder to Master of Jazz/Swing Adam is sure to get your feet tapping and hips swaying as he blasts his way through the good old music hits. It starts at 1:30pm and is free. His show is at Lady K’s Stage in Silver Street, which is within walking distance of Bedford station.
Lovers of theatre may be interested in Tristan and Iseult – A Storytelling Performance. This old story was the biggest hit of the early middle ages, dozens of versions, spreading rapidly from Iceland to Bohemia. Tickets cost from £5, and can be bought online, with the performance starting at 4pm. The performance takes place in the Howard Room, which is within walking distance of Bedford station.
