On 6th and 7th July Independent Retailer Weekend UK arrives. Bedford boasts an extraordinary number of independent businesses, the list of which keeps growing with new ones arriving almost weekly. Patisseries, bakeries, gift shops, plants and flowers, restaurants and eateries, plus a whole lot more. Fun fact: you can find just about everything you need right here in town. Our Business Directory showcases every business in the BID zone and you might be surprised what you find!

BedfordBID is excited to be able to put extra emphasis on this important date so we’ll be extending this and be celebrating our independent businesses for the whole of July. And to help everyone to take part, we’ll be holding a FREE PRIZE DRAW where you can vote for your favourite independent! Details are to follow so keep an eye on our website and listings where we will be providing details of the competition.

So head to Bedford and explore the myriad of shops and businesses ready to make your trip to town a special one!
