the blender sessions
We’re especially proud of our work on this project. From humble beginnings we quickly moved from producing DIY video shoots to collaborating with the best behind-the-camera talent in Bedford and working with some of the most forward thinking businesses in town.

4-track vinyl EP
We selected four unsigned local bands performing on the Bedford live scene to appear on a unique and special vinyl 4-track record: blender selects.
Find out more about the project here
The double A-side EP features Elijah Miller, Sarpa Salpa, SARA and Banton. We sold 100 advance copies with a successful crowdfund, which allowed us to press 600 records. Each band will now have around 100 copies to sell out on tour. We hope that future ‘selects’ project will continue to bring local bands together.

friday night blender
We were always looking for new places and venues to host a Friday Night Blender but we didn't think 2020 would take us in to the world of live streaming.
The Friday Night Blender mixes up the best of the local scene with a few surprises. We've been able to work with some incredible bands across the nights we've run; Lily Agnes, Adam James Urwin, Gen & The Degenerates, Elijah Miller, ENNE, Low Girl and everyone's favourite Ska masters, The Pride to name a few.
We hope to be back at Esquires soon to see you for real. Until then, watch out for our Friday Night Lockdown Sessions.
Get in touch if you would like to host an an event. The stranger the place the better!
bedford river festival
the st mary's stage
Bedford's bi-annual gathering down by the river is one of the largest free festivals in Europe. We hope to be back in 2022 running the St Mary's Stage again and we are looking forward to finalising the lineup for next year, which will include some very special guests.
blender weekend takeover
We love the Bedfringe weekend. Some of the best talent in comedy, theatre and entertainment sharpening their game in preparation for a stint in Edinburgh. We provide the music for a weekend takeover and with the busking spirit very much alive, have proven that the age old passing a bucket around can work wonders for the bands who take part [we might go contactless next year though!]
We look forward to bringing some exciting new bands to play in the glorious surroundings of the Quarry Theatre.
The best food stalls you could think of and all the music under one of Bedford's iconic Bandstands while you laze on the grass by the Embankment. One of the highlights of the year and we hope to be able to bring you news of new plans soon.

We've teamed up with the folks at Reasons To Be Cheerful to run the after show party for their all day long communions. Live Music and DJs to celebrate a day of learning and insight from a host of amazing guest speakers. For more info - head over to www.reasonstobecheerful.co.uk/
