Futur-oke Future Towns


Event Description

Calling all Major Toms and Inter-planet Janets! On Friday 3 August, artist, Sadie Hennesy invited you to rummage through her space-age dressing-up box, don a shiny costume and sing karaoke songs about stars and space. Bedfordians came and release their inner superstars at our galactic-inspired, pop-up Karaoke at Riverside Square.



As part of our new Future Towns commission we took part in The Philharmonia’s Virtual Orchestra Fringe. The Virtual Orchestra is a digital symphony orchestra on your doorstep, powered by the Philharmonia Orchestra and will run from July 2 to August 10 this summer at Riverside Square, Bedford.
