Music, comedy and even a bit of Sinatra rounds off this year’s Bedfringe.

Local legends The Ouse Valley Singles Club make a return to the festival, and you can see them at The Ent Shed on Friday, July 25 at 8pm.

The audience is invited to partake in their uncoventional singles club offering old favourites and new songs that may help you find love on your allotment, a bucket list and how they feel about ‘selfies’.

Meet Tom Barron on lead vocals and tenor ukele, Amy Martell on Hofner Bass and Uncle Sam on Washboard.

Their roots lie heavily amongst the sounds and traditions of 1950s skiffle, but they combine this with the energy of punk, the swing of rock and roll and humorous folk-like storytelling thrown in.

Over at Bedford Theatre, Bec and Tom’s Awesome Laundry provides a funny family show on Sunday, July 27 at 2.30pm.

Adventures can be found in the most boring places, and the fun begins when Bec tries to drag Tom down to the launderette.

Show is suitable for children aged from six years and runs for 55 minutes.

The Ent Shed hosts the Bedfringe closing party on Sunday, July 27 at 7.30pm, with music from Tony Phillips and Jazzhouse. He’ll be swinging through some Sinatra and Dean Martin, with other styles too.

Just a reminder that tonight sees Pete Webb as Elvis at 123 Create in Midland Road, Anthem For A Doomed Youth at The Place (7.30pm), Lucy Porter and Tom Toal at The Ent Shed, and Bill Clinton Hercules with Bob Paisley at The Place (9pm).
