Following the announcements made by the government to tackle the spread of the coronavirus, The Higgins Bedford is closed until further notice.

 

The health, welfare and safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors remains our top priority.

 

We will provide further updates as soon as possible. You can stay in touch with us through our website and social media channels: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

 

Some of our events are now online:

 

Sketch Friday 

Every week we will post an object or artwork from the Higgins collections which we hope will inspire you to create your own piece of art.

 

We would love it if you could share a photo of your work with us. No particular artistic skills required, any media that takes your fancy – it’s just for fun. We look forward to seeing what you come up with and welcome suggestions for future themes.

Knitting for various charities, improving wellbeing and keeping each other company.
