Reminiscence Monthly Themes

What a Panacea…

7th March, 11am

Today we investigate Bedford’s unique history of the Panacea Society, discover more about what they believed and why they thought Bedford was the ‘garden of Eden’.  

Round and Round the Garden

11th April, 11am

To tie in with our newly opened exhibition we will be exploring our favourite gardens and plants as we get into spring.

Bunyan to the Brickworks

9th May, 11am

Today we will look at our exhibition ‘Pride Inspiration Hope’ Journey of Bunyan to the Brickworks. We will explore Bedford’s long heritage as a town looking at both John Bunyan’s journey and the journey taken by many people who came to Bedford after the Second World War, who came to work in the brickworks and rebuilt both Bedfordshire and Britain.

A trip back to the 1950s

13th June, 11am

Share your memories of 1950s music, TV shows, leisure activities, work, school, clothes and cars. What would you bring back to enjoy again today?
