We'll be participating in this years Heritage Open Day. There are lots of events during the weekend but we will be at St. Paul's Church on Saturday 8th September from 10am till 4pm.
The theme for the day is 'Great Bedfordians' which is perfect because it has given us the chance to offer a sneak preview of plans for the People Gallery which is one of the new galleries planned for The Higgins when it reopens in spring 2013.
The People Gallery will hold changing exhibitions about Great Bedfordians. Some of these Bedfordians are the famous builders of Bedford that you're probably all familiar with - John Bunyan, Sir William Harpur and John Howard. But we also want to include those that may have been overlooked in the past and even those that might be 'Great Bedfordians' of the future.
That's why we're planning to hold an election. Heritage Open Day is your chance to vote for your favourite Bedfordians and to nominate those that may have been overlooked to date.
So come along and cast your vote.
