Be creative, make a difference!
We co-funded the Culture Plus project with Arts Council England (through the Royal Opera House Bridge.) The aim was to develop creative learning opportunities for those young people who would most benefit from the project, giving them new energy and improving their life chances. It was also an opportunity to open up some of the area's cultural and leisure resources to people who hadn't accessed them before. The project came to an end in July 2018; achieving some great results for participants. We are currently in the process of reviewing the evaluation and identifying next steps from the scheme and will update this page in due course.
In the meantime, children and young people can access a variety of artistic and cultural activity through the following Central Bedfordshire venues:
- The Grove Theatre (link opens in new window)
- Houghton Hall Park (link opens in new window)
- Rushmere Park (link opens in new window)
- Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre (link opens in new window)
- Central Bedfordshire Libraries (link opens in new window)
Teachers, parents and cultural providers (venues and artists) can also access information, support and a directory of providers through the new Central Bedfordshire Culture Challenge website (link opens in new window).
