Actor and comedian James Corden made a surprise visit to Bedford - and joined in a game of football.
The 35-year-old star of TV’s popular comedy Gavin and Stacey dropped in at the opening of the Woolpack Hub, the former pub which has been transformed into a community venue by the Salvation Army.
The co-writer and star of the BBC sitcom - for which he won the BAFTA Television Award for Best Comedy Performance - spent time with visitors at the official opening of the new centre.
On Saturday, May 24, the site in Commercial Road was relaunched as a ‘dry house’ by The Salvation Army, with a mini street festival to mark the event.
The refurbished building brings a new space for community use, but especially for young people to study, play sports or just chill out.
The Woolpack Hub will be run on a not-for-profit basis, and houses a café and meeting rooms for clubs and businesses to hire.
