Catering, Bars, Confectionery and Slush

At the 2022 Bedford River Festival, the Council Events Team is looking for the best of the catering industry to ensure that visitors have a wide variety of choice and quality products to enjoy across the site. A key focus for 2022 is the reduction of single use plastics and non-recyclables. Take a look at our Environmental Statement to see whether your business can support us in providing goods and services that fit within our ethos.
