Exciting radio plays project for local performers and directors: update, December 2021

Act Bedford was created to draw together writers and artists from the local area to develop ten new short radio plays for late 2021/early 2022, on the theme of winter.  The project involves collaboration with Bedford Radio and support from The Place Bedford, and the selected scripts were chosen from over 30 submissions.

The following plays have been created and delivered to Bedford Radio.

Well done and thanks to all involved.
