Give a statue a voice


You've heard from John Bunyan, John Howard, Glenn Miller and more...but some of the other statues of Bedford are also waiting for their chance to get a word in!

What will they say? Are you the one to tell us?

Sing London is giving budding writers the chance to bring two Bedford statues to life with the Talking Statues Public Writing Competition:

Sir William Harpur

Trevor Huddleston

The winning pieces will be recorded by well-known actors associated with Bedford and included as part of Talking Statues, ready to chat in summer 2017. They’ll talk for a whole year! Winners will also be invited along to their monologue recording and receive a copy of the final recorded script to keep.

To enter, submit a short monologue (maximum 350 words) from the perspective of your chosen competition statue to with the heading ‘Public Writing Competition Entry’.

Deadline: 21 May 2017
