The Film Scenes in My Head

@ VOL 3 ON NOV 06, 2014

Paul Hutchinson, film lover and founder of Bedford Film Festival takes us on a journey through the film scenes in his head. From the classics to the most recent, films are more than stories to show and tell, but to express one's emotions to one or hundred people.  And through the movie pictures are how people can be touched and understand the story teller from behind the camera.

Luton Fun Palace

@ VOL 3 ON NOV 06, 2014

Artist Paul Pibworh shows us his experience of the Luton Fun Place. Games, music, and clowns shows that everyone is still a kid inside, given enough time to relax and remember what it meant to be a kid. Growing old is required, growing up is optional.

My Monstrous Body of Research

@ VOL 3 ON NOV 06, 2014

Artist Edwin Fay explores her monstrous body of research, drawing inspiration from folk law and cathedral architecture she explores what it might be to imagine things you've not yet seen and to be people other than yourself.

The Fantastic Mr Fox

@ VOL 3 ON NOV 06, 2014

Theatre maker and Artistic Director Sam Turton gives us a behind the scenes glimpse into the making of his version of Roald Dahls adapted for stage 'Fantastic Mr Fox' show.

I Don't Believe in God But He Does Design Well

@ VOL 3 ON NOV 06, 2014

Sandra Dartnell helps people buy great design, so she is hyper-aware of what does and doesn't work. Her curiousity for and appreciation of design work led her to notice and explore the great design behind the Christian Alpha courses, despite not being a Christian herself.
