    Bedford Corn Exchange, St Pauls Square

    The world’s greatest tribute to the world’s greatest legend!

    Bruce Springsteen is touring the world this year – tickets for his stadium shows have sold out in minutes – but don’t feel left out! The Boss UK brings all of Bruce’s best-loved hits in a sweat-drenched, ninety-minute show with all the passion, intensity and realism of the true Boss.

    This band of world-class musicians has risen rapidly to wide critical acclaim becoming the World’s Official No.1 Springsteen tribute. Some say, not just the best tribute to Springsteen, but the best tribute band, full stop.

    From the blistering opening of ‘Born to Run’ this production becomes one huge sing along so get ready to become part of the show!

  • Three Half Pints: The Three Musketeers

    Sunday 28 May 2017 7:42pm

    The Quarry Theatre, St Peters Street, Bedford MK40 2NN

    2.30pm & 7.30pm

    Fresh from Justin’s House and Spot Bots, join the CBeebies’ favourites as they swashbuckle their way across the UK in a hilarious new slapstick adventure of chivalry, swordplay and suddenly falling over.

    The seventeenth century has never been so silly!

    Chaos, mayhem and stupidity reign supreme as children’s comedy trio the Three Half Pints swish their swords, buff their boots and flourish their feathers in their most ridiculous adventure yet!

    Will they defeat the dastardly evil-doers? Will they save the damsel in distress? Will they actually read the book before writing the show?

    The Three Half Pints are Robin Hatcher (Ernie), Richard Franklin (Dick) and Callum Donnelly (Derek,). They met at University in 2010 where they bonded over a shared love of Slapstick comedy. Their work is unique on the children’s theatre circuit and they are supported by the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury

    Their slapstick comedy and sketch writing skills lead to them being cast last year as green-faced aliens, the Odd Bods, in CBeebies’ new show Spot Bots. They’ve also been seen recently in the highly popular Justin’s House and their previous tour, Bad Guys, enthralled and delighted audiences at almost a hundred venues across the UK from Llandudno to St Andrews.

    After completing a UK tour in February 2016, the Tom Syson Sextet recorded their debut album ‘Green’ at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in August. The album was produced by Percy Pursglove and featured the JazzFm Vocalist of the Year 2016 Lauren Kinsella on a track. It is entirely made up from original material written by Tom, and creates a variety of exciting textures to keep audiences on their toes, with a focus on rich melodies.

    The sextet is made up of some of the best young UK based musicians. Jonathan Silk on Drums, Pete Hutchison on Double Bass, David Ferris on Piano, Ben Lee on Guitar, Vittorio Mura on Tenor Saxophone and Tom Syson on Trumpet. 

    Tom Syson is a trumpeter and creative musician based in Bedfordshire. He is, ‘one of the most interesting voices in the emerging generation of improvisers’ and is ‘happy to take risks’. He has played with musicians such as Arnie Somogyi, Alex Garnett and Jacqui Dankworth, and has played at venues/events such as Ronnie Scotts, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, The Barbican and The Royal Albert Hall. Tom currently plays lead trumpet in The Birmingham Jazz Orchestra, and also holds a chair in the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. “He is a very good musician and someone who really cares about the music” - JACQUI DANKWORTH.

    Doors open at 7.30pm

    The Pad Presents T.REXTASY  (Tribute to the music of T.Rex) 

    The 40th Commemorative Anniversary Tour

    Marc Bolan, with his band T.Rex, was one of the most flamboyant and charismatic stars of the original glam rock era. It’s hard to believe that 40 years have now passed since Marc’s tragic fatal car accident and fans have mourned the loss of a truly individual, inspirational talent ever since. Bolan's special ingredient of Rock-a-Boogie songs including '20th Century Boy’, ‘Get in On’ and 'I Love to Boogie' have insured that Marc Bolan and T.Rex have become one of the most memorable and enduring bands of the seventies

    T.Rextasy have now been performing around the world for over 20 years, a career that ironically out lives Marc’s very own T.Rex.  They have become widely accepted as the world’s only official tribute show dedicated to Marc Bolan & T.Rex, and the only band endorsed and approved by Marc’s family, estate and catalogue management, not to mention original members of T.Rex. The band has been described by many as ‘beyond the boundaries of tribute’.

    This year T.rextasy are celebrating Marc’s life and works with a very special commemorative tour. Truly a rock’n’roll concert for all ages – If you would like to know exactly what a Marc Bolan concert was like in the 1970s, this show is for you!

    Tickets are £19.50 in advance.  This is a fully seated show.

    Captured live at the National Theatre, a recorded performance of JM Barrie’s much-loved tale screens in cinemas this summer.

    When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues.

    A delight for children and adults alike, Sally Cookson (NT Live: Jane Eyre) directs this wondrously inventive production, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre.

    Continuing the season’s theme of the celebration of English music this concert features a variety of works. The stunning Five Mystical Songs is a setting of poems by George Herbert. The chorus comes to the fore in the fifth song. The orchestral works in the programme contrast with each other from the serene music of Butterworth to the playful music of Holst. Michael Hurd’s work is a setting of poems by John Clare for Baritone, chorus and orchestra describing the seasons. It has been described as “the most accessible of all great English poems”. The music, written in 1975, compliments the poems in a tuneful and very accessible way. This is a delightfully varied concert for a summer evening. Do come!

    Performed by our upper school pupils.

    Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead retells the story of Shakespeare’s Hamlet from the point of view of two of the famous play’s most insignificant characters. While visiting their old friend Hamlet, the pair engage in an ongoing philosophical debate about free will versus predestination, each trying to prove absurd positions through misbegotten experiments. Meanwhile, the clueless friends attempt to make sense of the peculiar goings-on in the castle.

  • Film Screening: 100 Streets

    Tuesday 20 June 2017 7:00pm

    Quarry Theatre, St Peters Street, Bedford MK40 2NN

    6.30pm

    100 STREETS, a powerful ensemble drama, follows three contrasting and interwoven stories as they play out in one square mile of modern day London. A former rugby player, Max (Idris Elba), struggles to find a life off the field while fighting to save his marriage to former actress Emily (Gemma Arterton).

    Kingsley (Franz Drameh of CW’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW) is a small time drug dealer desperately seeking a way off the street. While completing his community service for a misdemeanor, Kinsley meets Terence (Ken Stott), a local thespian, who gives him the push he needs out of his dead end life and into a very different, creative world. George (Charlie Creed-Miles), a cab driver, and his wife Kathy (Kierston Wareing) dream of having kids, but a devastating road accident puts their hopes on hold even testing their otherwise strong marriage. Anybody can make a wrong turn, but it’s the journey that allows us to find the right path.

    OB Leon Butler is a Writer and Producer for television and film. His first feature film 100 STREETS is a complex, multi-layered drama set in South West London, starring Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton, alongside a plethora of well-known UK talent. Leon not only penned the script, but also single-handedly raised the entire £3 million budget from private equity.

    Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production on the stage of the National Theatre.

  • An Evening with Carol Ann Duffy & John Sampson

    Tuesday 27 June 2017 7:25pm

    Quarry Theatre, St Peters Street, Bedford MK40 2NN

    7.30pm

    Mesmerising words and atmospheric music combine in this collaboration between Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and musician John Sampson.

    Ground-breaking writer and Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy’s combination of tenderness and toughness, humour and lyricism, unconventional attitudes and conventional forms has won her a wide audience of readers and listeners.  Works such as Rapture and The World’s Wife have earned her numerous awards, including The Forward and T.S. Eliot Prizes. Multi-instrumentalist John Sampson has been a well-known and loved performer on the UK music scene for nearly forty years.

    Together, the pair bring an hour of light and shade, laughter and reflection to The Quarry Theatre. Carol Ann will read from her acclaimed collections. Lucid, honest and accessible, her writing explores both everyday experience and our inner worlds in deceptively simple, profoundly resonant poems. John will take us on a virtuoso tour through musical highlights of the past 500 years, played on a fascinating collection of instruments.

    Be sure to see a vivacious literary icon and dazzling musician weaving words and music powerfully and humorously.

    Kaiser Chiefs have fast become one of the most successful UK indie rock bands today. Their most notable hits include ‘I Predict a Riot’, ‘Every day I love you Less and Less’ (both from their debut album) and smash hit ‘Ruby’ from their second album, amongst many others. Their second album, ‘Yours Truly, Angry Mob’ topped the success of their first, reaching the number one spot on the UK albums chart and the album’s lead single ‘Ruby’ became their first ever UK number one single.

    Supporting the Kaiser Chiefs will be indie / rock giants Feeder, whose hits include the iconic ‘Buck Rogers’, ‘Feeling A Moment’ and ‘Just The Way I’m Feeling’. We can’t wait to welcome these Welsh rockers to Bedford Park.

    The final two support acts will be ‘The Wholls’, who have a large fan base in Bedford and it’s great to see local talent taking on the world, we are really pleased the band can join us on their home turf. Last but by no means least we have ‘Victoria’ who are hotly making a name for themselves on the indie circuit and can be found playing at most of the major UK festivals this Summer; you saw them here first!
