Due to a trademark issue we will be changing our name and will be known as Bedford Creative Arts whilst continuing the evolution of the organisation. Our new website and brand identity have made interacting with us more accessible and open and we will continue to further our relationships with our communities, artists and partners. We know that our brand is more than just a name, we have a brilliant new website, materials and design, which has allowed us to reach a wider audience.

This changeover will happen over the next two weeks.
