Heritage funding success for Full House Theatre and Bedford’s museums

Event in Bedford Town Centre

Bedfordshire’s leading children’s theatre company Full House Theatre have been awarded £72,000 funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund to work on an exciting collaborative live heritage event for Bedford’s museums.

‘The Power of Three’ (working title), will create a live interactive museum experience in the unique setting of Bedford’s cultural quarter. Working with partner museums – The Higgins Bedford, John Bunyan Museum and The Panacea Museum – Full House Theatre will create an interactive walking tour of the three sites, specifically for children, young people and families. The project aims to enhance the experience of children visiting collections in the museums and for children and families to learn more about the town’s unique heritage, promoting the museums and Bedford as a great place to live and visit.

Harriet Hardie, Co-Creative Director at Full House Theatre said: “Having worked with The Higgins and John Bunyan Museum for a number of years, we’re really excited to be taking our partnership forwards, with The Panacea Museum joining us, on such an exciting new project. We want more school children and families to have the opportunity to experience Bedford’s cultural quarter and we believe our innovative performance project will do just that”.

Full House Theatre will begin consulting with the museum’s youth and volunteer groups during Summer 2020, launching the project to schools and public during Spring/Summer 2021.
