If you’re stuck for plans for the weekend, or you just need a little inspiration to get out and about, then don’t fear. In the first of a weekly series of posts, we will let you know of the special events going on both on and around the Marston Vale Line this Saturday 15th September. Please note some of these events may require pre-booking.
The Bedfordshire Walking Festival is coming to an end, with several walks planned. Meet up at Ridgmont Station at 10:30am for a 4 mile walk around the area, including information on Ridgmont Station and the Bedford to Milton Keynes Waterway.
One event we highly recommend you attend is the 2nd Love Bletchley Day, near Bletchley station. Organised by local residents the town centre will be full of an amazing range of stalls selling a wide range of goodies including food, jewellery, art and crafts, clothing, cupcakes, flowers and lots of exciting demonstrations throughout the day.
The sporting action returns to the Marston Vale Line this week. Milton Keynes Dons face a high-flying Yeovil Town at stadium:MK near Fenny Stratford, kick-off at 3pm. At the other end of the line, Bedford Blues Rugby Club look to return to winning ways at home to London Scottish. Kick-off at Goldington Road is at 3pm. Also in Bedford, Bedford Eagles are at home to Bedworth United, with kick-off at The Eyrie at 3pm.
For lovers of rock, pop, film, and TV, Peacock Auctions on Newnham Street, Bedford are holding an auction of memorabilia from 10:30am. You could pick up a strand of Elvis’ hair (no, really!).
All crafters out there may want to pop along to a Card Making Workshop being held at the Art Centre and Gallery, Howard Street, Bedford. The workshop starts at 10am, finishing at 4pm.
Finally, musicians may be interested in hand-drumming and harmonica workshops being run by The Stables, near Woburn Sands station. You’re guarunteed a fun time with this! The workshop runs between 10am and 4pm, with lunch provided.
As well as the special events, there are lots of other things to see and do on the Marston Vale Line, so visit our Day’s Out page for more details.
