BEDFRINGE 2019

Bedfringe was born very simply out of a visit to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe back in 2004. Subsequently, we teamed up with Sandra Dudley (of Art’icle magazine) with the idea of bringing a little bit of Edinburgh back to Bedford.

This year we celebrate the events 13th year with some fantastic acts; fimiliar faces at bedfringe as well as some brand new talent.

Rocket Girl

From the makers of Ingo’s War.

The year is 1969 and the world is changing. Beehives and miniskirts are all the rage; Everyone is listening to The Beatles; Where a bag of fish and chips would cost you 25p. And NASA has just put the first man on the moon. The world is transfixed and everyone is watching, including eight-year-old Maisie Robinson. From the very moment she saw man on the moon, Maisie knew that she was destined to be an astronaut. In her dreams she travelled beyond the earth’s atmosphere and flew amongst the brightest of stars. But unknown to Maisie, people had other plans about her future. After all, girls don’t do science, do they?

Using an amalgamation of storytelling, puppetry and movement with an original score, Ditto Theatre Company invites you to join us in making the impossible possible as one girl battles to become…Rocket Girl!

Rocket Girl was developed in association with the National Theatre of Scotland as part of their 2018 Exchange Programme.

Sam & Mark’s On The Road Show

Children’s TV royalty Sam and Mark, as seen on CBBC’s Big Friday Wind-Up and Copycats, are taking to the road with a brand new live show this half term.

Join the BAFTA award winning duo for an unmissable hour of entertainment jam packed with sketches, jokes and games in a show full of fun and laughs for all the family.

Hansel And Gretel – The Pantomime

A fun-filled, sugar-fuelled, family-friendly pantomime adventure that reminds us ALL not to take candy from strangers (even if they wow you with a fabulous song and dance number!)

Join ‘Hansel and Gretel’ in the Quarry Theatre’s new take on an old favourite; with tasty tunes, magical mayhem and colourful characters (including a 7 foot yeti!) it’s simply not to be missed!
