Bedworth Bear Hunt

Thank you to everyone who took part in Bedworth Bear Hunt, and we hope you enjoyed it.  It was so good to see people walking around the town with their forms noting the numbers on the bear's bibs.  Winners will be notified later this week.

Our thanks also to all the shops and businesses who took good care of their bears.  

The imposter (the one who was pretending to be a bear) has enjoyed himself so much, he is staying on a bit longer in Bedworth.  The Lion is sitting in the window of Shoebox, and is watching people waiting at the traffic lights at the top of Newtown Road.

We are now on Facebook!

We now have a Facebook page for The Bedworth Society and Heritage Centre.  Find out the latest news and photographs of old Bedworth.

The Heritage Centre is open again!

The Heritage Centre is open again!  Thanks to The Nicholas Chamberlaine Trust for the loan of a dehumidifyer to help dry out the Heritage Centre.  Our first exhibition in 2024 is about shopping in Bedworth in days gone by.  Before the centre of Bedworth was pedestrianised J C Smiths had a large department store in All Saints Square.  There were crowds of people in Bedworth when the Hypermarket was opened.  We had a whole variety of small shops which have been and gone.
