The Higgins museum is bringing Bedford’s Georgian history to life with a day of special events.

There will be a talk on the Elizabeth Snitch Sampler, a map of the area stitched in 1779, and music from the Bedford Gallery Quire.

The performers will bring the 18th and early 19th centuries to life using original musical instruments and wearing the fashions of the day. They will also demonstrate traditional dance.

Georgian Day is Saturday, May 7, from 11am to 5pm. The event is free and open to all.
