On Saturday 22 June 2019, dozens of professional and amateur photographers took part in a Borough-wide project to capture a day in the life of Bedford.

35 residents volunteered to submit their photos, ranging from the moon rising over Roff Avenue to sunset at the Gurdwara in Queens Park.

The project was a collaboration between Explore Bedford, the Bedford Independent and the Bedford Clanger, with the support of Bedford Borough Council.

Thanks to DBM Motion Graphics for creating the Bedford in a Day film and to Explore Bedford partners Wells & CoBedford Heights and the Harpur Trust for their support.
