This weekend marks the return of the biennial river festival right here in Bedford. The festival now in its 40th year takes place from 14th – 15th July on the beautiful embankment of the River Great Ouse as it passes through Bedford. The town is gearing up to welcome thousands of visitors to celebrate all that is great about the river, offering some alternative entertainment to what is already set to be a bumper weekend with the World Cup and Wimbledon finals. If you are visiting then enjoy the fun, if not then enjoy the pleasant summer weather whatever you are up to this weekend.
