Arrangements for all events be contingent on public health guidance at the time.


All our events will be held at Brickhill Community Centre (Avon Drive, Bedford, MK41 7AF), which is about 2 miles north of Bedford town centre, just off Kimbolton Road (B660) at the intersection of Avon Drive and Waveney Avenue. There is a car park at the hall. Bus route no 6 runs every 12 minutes from Bedford bus station and stops just outside [Timetable].

The door is normally locked, so use the intercom beside it to call the upper hall. When admitted, go through the doors to the back of the building and take the stairs up to the first floor.

The community centre car park entrance is adjacent to the bus stop on Avon Drive in the centre of the map below. Click 'View larger map' to go to the Google Maps web site for directions.
