It has been five years since The Higgins Bedford reopened following redevelopment work. To celebrate, we have asked some of the communities, organisations and people we have worked in partnership with to choose their favourite paintings and prints to exhibit.

Enjoy highlights from Bedford’s internationally renowned Cecil Higgins Art Gallery collection as well works that have not been on display since we reopened.
