“Great location”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Invited to a presentation here the other month and thought it was a great location, enjoyed the surroundings and because it is in the middle of town everything is easy to get to, however, It does leave parking as a bit of a problem but all in all a good venue.

“A great venue.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

I have visited the Corn Exchange on many occasions, to see plays, classical music concerts, comedians and pop groups. The facilities are excellent and there are two bars at most events. The whole space is accessible by people in wheelchairs and the sound and lighting systems are very good. This was the home of Glenn Miller and the BBC Orchestra in WWII. Now home to the Philharmonia Orchestra. I will continue to use this facility for many years to come.

“Good night out”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We went here to watch Jackson Forever last night which was very good the sound to start with was a issue but that was quickly rectified. The venue was nearly full but was still easy to get a drink before and at the interval.

“Venue saved by the brilliant Lee Evans”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Having just returned from watching Lee Evans for the 8th time,and what a brilliant show it was,the venue was lacking in a few areas.Yes internally it is a pretty little place holding up to 600 people with an upper balcony area however the seating on the lower tier was all in a flat arrangement which made it incredibly hard to see past anyone in front of you.Today was a very warm day so you can imagine just how hot it was inside the corn exchange but as we entered a lady who worked there told some people in front of us that the air con was broken which made the evening very uncomfortable.This needs addressing as we paid £55.00 per couple to see a great show but also sweat profusely and to keep leaning across to get an occasional view of Mr evans.So considering we are seeing him again at the nia in september and this cost us £60.00 for a top class arena like that,then sadly i do not think on this occasion this place was worth half of the price we paid.visited friday 13th june.

“Bedfords Largest Venue”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

I am proud to say my family have now clocked up 5 generations who have performed here at Bedfords biggest and finest Theater, this is where all the big events happen and famous people have and still do perform, from Glenn Miller, Cid Lawrence way back when, to Danny Larue, Freddy Star, Big Daddy and so many more, the stage is quite big and plenty of seating and balcony seats too, there are plenty of changing rooms that are well equipped lighting mirrors plug sockets lol better than some places I have performed lol This place can also be rented out private and also has lots of shows & events all year round, I love this place, you can easily find whats on by google Bedford Corn exchange or Bedford Box Office, Im sure there will be a event you will want to go to :)
