Festival of Culture 2021

Bedford House is proud to be a delivery partner at the Epping Forest District Festival of Culture, January to April 2021!

It is Bedford House’ mission to improve the quality of life for people through adult education and leisure activities, and we are delighted to be part of the Festival to celebrate and showcase the diverse cultural life of both Bedford House and the district. 

Find your inner artist!  Contact the Bedford House Office to try a taster session.

The EFDC describes the Festival of Culture concept: “This is the first ever Epping Forest District Council Festival of Culture, which provides a platform for online activities hosted by cultural organisations from across the district. Epping Forest District Council’s Community, Culture & Wellbeing team, who have made this all possible, will also be running a variety of activities as part of the Festival.

Given the unprecedented challenges brought by coronavirus, we think it is more important than ever to celebrate and showcase the diverse cultural life of the district. Events are loosely based on the theme of ‘Wildlife’ and cover a wide range of artistic and cultural interests, covering all ages, and providing something for everyone.

We hope you enjoy exploring everything the Festival has to offer.

Bedford House was originally contributing to the Festival with our famous Epping Forest Guided Walks on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and at least one workshop on the theme of wildflower painting in watercolour.  However, due to the corona virus restrictions we have now launched Bedford House Online and offer 10+ courses online, mainly delivered on Zoom and supported with WhatsApp and email, but there are also some courses that are specifically task-based art courses for those with limited access to IT. 

For more information, please see the full course programme on our website www.bedfordhouse.org.uk which is regularly updated with courses and events; email Enquiries@Bedfordhouse.org.uk or call the Office on 020 8504 6668 and leave a clear message for us to call you back within 24 hours (just leave your name and telephone number).
