Bedford Borough Council has today announced it will be holding a public screening at Bedford Corn Exchange for those wishing to watch the funeral of our late Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II.
The funeral will be on Monday 19 September from 11am, with doors at Bedford Corn Exchange opening from 10am.
Dave Hodgson, Mayor of Bedford Borough, said, "We recognise this is a time that many residents will not want to be alone when watching the funeral of Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II. We would like to invite people to join together with others from across the Borough to watch these historic proceedings at Bedford Corn Exchange."
With numbers strictly limited due to the capacity of Bedford Corn Exchange, residents must book their place to watch the proceedings in advance.
