Bedford's Corn Exchange is a multi-purpose arts and entertainment venue, hosting hundreds of events per year – mostly concerts, as befitting a venue that the Philharmonia Orchestra counts as a second home. Originally built as a concert venue and meeting space, it has numerous rooms available for private hire. The monthly Comedy Club features big-name comedians such as Ed Byrne, Alan Davies and Milton Jones.

It's served by the 21, 27, 42, 44, 71, 72, 73, 74 and 81 bus routes and the nearest railway station is Bedford, about 15 minutes' walk away.

  • Open since: 1874
