Join us for the evening to celebrate the fantastic
winning entries of the Recording Bedfordians newspaper article competition,
run as part of the Harpur Trusts 450th Anniversary celebrations. The
competition, co-organised with John Bunyan Museum & Library, was to write a
five-hundred-word newspaper article on a famous Bedford person. The 140
entries, across four age groups: 5-8 years, 8-11yrs, 11-14yrs, and 14-18yrs,
were judged by local journalists from Castle Quarter Magazine, Beds on Sunday,
Times and Citizen, and The Clanger.
The evening will be an opportunity to hear the winning
entries performed by staff and pupils from Harpur Trust schools and a few
special guests! Tickets are free and available from The Quarry Theatre box
John Bunyan Museum welcomes over 6,000 visitors from around
the world and tells the story of the Bedford man who wrote The Pilgrims
Progress, one of the greatest novels in the English language.
For 450 years The Harpur Trust has been inspiring and
supporting people within the Borough of Bedford, using the legacy of our
founder Sir William Harpur to provide and promote education, to provide relief
and help to those who are sick, in hardship or distress, and to provide
recreational facilities with a social welfare purpose.
