Victorian Concert Venue & Meeting Space
Mar 2020 • Solo
Bedford’s Corn Exchange was constructed in 1874 as a concert venue, meeting place and business centre with offices in the basement. The grand concert hall was used as the venue for the BBC Proms as well as performances by the likes of Bing Crosby and Glenn Miller during the Second World War when the BBC transferred much of its broadcasting operations from London to Bedford. Today it is home to up to 800 performances per year including music, drama and stand-up comedy.

Great theatre, quite cosy
Jan 2020
We went to see the ballet "Sleeping Beauty". Quite a cosy theatre but well-organised and good views from most of the theatre.

Faulty towers experience
Dec 2019 • Couples
Attended the faulty towers experience diner on 19th December 2019. Overall a jolly good proformance from the cast, but the food wasn’t that fantastic, drinks jolly expensive, 1 bottle of red and one white wine and can of coke £37.50, gents toilets were disgusting with only one cubicle in operation. Not good value for money overall.

Only fools & Horses Dinner
Nov 2019
Went recently to the Bedford Corn Exchange for a Only Fools & Horses themed Dinner event.

The bar area where you are sent to prior to the event was far too small and not enough table and sitting for the number of people attending.

The event itself was well run and the actors do a good attempt at the characters in the show.

The food was actually good and was a surprise as usually these themed events are normally below par.

All in all not a bad night out.

Thanks to Tony Milioti and team for making our event a success. We used both outside and inside space for the morning . Then the Harpur Suite was turned into a dinner and dance venue for the evening.

Acoustically it’s a show-stopper, and not in a good way.
May 2019 • Friends
Went to see Shalamar with some buddies: there were two issues that spoiled it for a lot of people. Firstly it was as hot as hell in there - if they do have AC or fans then it wasn’t turned on. There were a LOT of people outside or downstairs as it was just unbearable. Secondly, and more importantly, it’s an acoustic nightmare. I’m a Bedford guy and know a lot of people there and most of them complained they could hardly hear any of the vocals as the levels were set so badly. You could hear the music fine, obviously, but generally you could hardly hear the vocals, especially with the softer sung tracks. There were a lot of disappointed people there Friday night who left early, as did we after an hour, as the levels were set so bad. A lack of acoustic control in the area meant that a lot of echoes and reverberations spoiled what you could hear.

Incredible night with Navi as Michael Jackson!
5*****
Apr 2019 • Couples
What a fantastic night!
We had an amazing evening, seeing Navi as Michael Jackson at the Bedford Corn Exchange.
Of course this was due to the amazing and talented Navi himself, but our experience would not have been the same if we hadn’t of received the fantastic service by Tony the venue manager at Bedford Corn Exchange and his team. They went above and beyond to make our experience one to remember!
Thank you Tony and to your team for being so friendly, helpful and delivering such a fantastic service. We will definitely be coming back soon!
We would highly recommend this venue if you enjoy these type of events!
