On November 25th BedfordBID collaborates with Bedford Borough Council to bring you Bedford Town Centre Christmas Lights Switch On! Starting at 12 o’clock, you can come along and enjoy the family festivities. On Silver Square have some fun and enjoy a round of Crazy Golf with friends and family for FREE!
Everybody say cheese! Have a FREE! photo of your group or family taken in the Christmas Snow Globe. A professional photographer will take your photo and give you a photo keepsake.
And keep a look out for Santa! The jolly man himself will make an appearance at the Harpur Centre!
The Love Bedford Stage in Harpur Square will feature live performances from 12 o’clock:
- Rachel Terrey

At 4pm the wonderful songstress Lissie Allsopp takes to the stage to share a collection of Christmas favourites to get us all in the festive mood.
At 5pm it’s time for Mayor Tom Wootton to press the button and illuminate Bedford. Then Lissie will lead us in a sing-along to some favourite Christmas tunes. Afterwards DJ Tom (not Mayor Tom!) will spin some classic Christmas anthems to keep the party going.
Refreshments will be available on Harpur Square, plus there will be offers and discounts for you to enjoy at our town centre hospitality establishments.
