The concert area and car parks are well lit, but it can be useful to bring a torch to help pack up your things and find your car.

The concert venue has an inner tarmacked pathway running all the way around, and leads directly to the concert area which is grassed. The grassed area is very flat and the grass cut short. There is also a wheelchair platform should guests in wheelchairs want to use this, and is on a first come first served basis. We have produced concerts in this park for 20 years, and this is one of our more wheelchair friendly venues we work at.
A fully licensed bar and catering facilities will be available. We operate a Challenge 25 policy at the bars. No alcohol will be served to any persons under the age of 18. Proof of identification and age may be required in the form of a valid driving license or passport.

Mark Harrison, Promoter of Bedford Park Concerts comments:
“The Proms concert is a truly special event, one of my personal favourites and a huge highlight in the Bedford social calendar. It’s something that every true Bedfordian should experience, regardless of whether you are a fan of classical music it’s the unique all-inclusive atmosphere, the gathering of friends and family and the spine tinging magical moments from when the laser show starts and the magnificent trees around Bedford Park are lit up to the firework spectacular along with the live orchestra and vocalists - there is nothing quite like it!”
