Tuesday, 3rd August 2021, 12:00 pm

Music in the Meadows is returning to the newly renovated Mill Meadows Bandstand this Sunday (August 8).

And for the next five weeks, there will be a two-hour free performance of traditional bandstand music between 3-5pm.

The full schedule is:

The newly renovated Mill Meadows Bandstand

Sunday, August 8 - Bedford Town Band

Sunday, August 15 - May Blossom Vintage Songbird

Sunday, August 22 - Bedford Town Band

Sunday, August 29 - Milton Keynes Brass

Sunday, September 5 - Fynnius Fogg

The renovation of the bandstand was funded from the Government Towns Fund - and the final item to be completed was the replacement of two sections of railings by skilled craftspeople to match the originals.

Mayor Dave Hodgson said: "It is great to see the Music in the Meadows event back to our riverside, it is always such an enjoyable event. Bring the family, pack a picnic and a blanket, and settle in for a great atmosphere.

“There is lots happening in Bedford this weekend, with the Bedford Flea at St Paul’s Square, Jamaican Independence celebrations, and the Harriers Triathlon."
