The Harpur Trust presents an exciting new exhibition of artwork by young people aged 4-16 years from Bedford Borough schools as part of The Harpur Trust biennial Art Competition.

 

The Harpur Trust has been in Bedford for over 450 years. During that time so many changes have already taken place. Thinking ahead to the future, pupils from local schools were asked to select any year and create their vision of what they think the future might hold for Bedford.

 

Four local artists led workshops with the children to explore different techniques before these young artists unleashed their imaginations. These are their hopes and dreams for Future Bedford! This delightful exhibition features a selection of artworks from those entered.
