The Love Bedford free family shows on the top of the riverside Castle Mound brought in more than 750 people across two Sundays.
Designed to attract visitors to Bedford to boost business trade in the town, the Castle Comedy and Amazing Bedford People productions did just that.
Organiser Karen Fryc of Get into Bed events said: “The rain was a bit challenging on the first weekend – but people still came with wet weather gear. The second weekend the weather couldn’t have been better and hundreds attended.
“The Bluecaps were great giving out balloons and goodie bags and everyone went home happy
Next up on the Love Bedford free events calendar are the August Thursday evening open air cinema shows at the Archaeological Site next door to the Castle Mound.
People came from all parts of Bedford borough and beyond including Dunstable and St Neots. For more visit lovebedford.co.uk
