Thousands of visitors are expected as the Castle Quarter summer festival gets underway for a fifth year.
Castle Road in Bedford will be transformed into a giant party area on Sunday, September 4, from 11am, with something for everyone at this free event.
There will be a music stage outside the Gordon Arms, two big art projects, juggling, Magic Dave, kids comedian Jay Foreman a ‘Party On The Pavement’ for all ages, bouncy castle, reptiles and face-painting.
Help to paint a ‘Castle On Canvas’, a massive community work of art. Or create your own masterpiece with a ‘Street Art Selfie’. Stalls, local cuisine, and book a ‘Arty Party Tea Party’, afternoon tea with a twist at the Gordon Arms.
