Exciting new project for scriptwriters

Act Bedford is a new arts initiative that has been 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.  

Act Bedford is working in collaboration with Bedford Radio and The Place, giving a chance for anyone interested in being a performer, director or technician to be part of the project along with the writers.  This is a fantastic opportunity for those who have links to Bedford (e.g. through living and/or working here) to submit scripts and possibly to hear their work broadcast on Bedford Radio if their script is selected as one of the ten.  
 
Writers need to submit by the end of August.  Performers, directors and technicians will be needed from September onwards.  If you are interested in finding out more about being involved in any of these roles, please contact Harri Mardlin at The Place (hm@theplacebedford.org.uk)
 
The opportunity is currently featured on BBC Writer’s Room and Act Bedford is active on Facebook and Twitter.
