Tastes Like Home Bedford

room 14 ECHOES

A GPS-triggered Audio Trail in Bedford Town Centre, telling stories by local creatives inspired by town heritage & residents’ memories of food & drink. We have tried to place echoes near benches or areas that are comfortable to be in. Throughout 2024, Tastes Like Home has built up a bank of local stories uncovered through archival research & interviews. Led by Radhika Aggarwal & Alex Levene, Bedford-based creatives have developed, written & recorded stories uncovering delicious memories of food & drink ingrained in the taste buds of Bedford & its residents. We are delighted to share them with you here & hope you enjoy the trail. To do the trail in one helping, allow 90 minutes to gently meander round the pins. Alternatively, take in a few bites when you have time & complete the trail in multiple visits. With thanks to The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England’s High Street Heritage Action Zone for Bedford, The Place Theatre, Bedford Creative Arts, and Wellbeing Media Studios.

Our Team: Aaron Spendelow, Alex Levene, Adie Mueller, Bartolomeo Ziccardi, Desiree Bashi, Hannah Jones, Hazel Fattorusso, Kimo Jeepaz, Lorenzo Bassignani, Oskar Konrad Puanecki, Radhika Aggarwal, Radhika Shah, Ricky Thapar, Rue Hughes, Sareya Randhawa, Sarika Shah, Sophie Herxheimer, Will Mitchell.
