We try to keep you all informed about all of our great shows, events, workshops and community activities that we have going on at The Place Bedford.

We publish regular blog posts from our Young Reviewer’s Scheme, which can be found at our Backstage blog here.

Also, did you know that we have a regular podcast that we publish every month? It’s filled with behind the scenes conversations with members of the team here at The Place Bedford. If you want to know more about why we programme the work we do, what has inspired the artist we work with to create their work, or any insights into the day-to-day work at the venue we recommend giving it a listen.
