Game Play Bedford is an initiative of The Place Theatre which is managed by Bedford Players Trust.

We do not receive any revenue funding but we are grateful to the numerous funders and our many supporters for their ongoing commitment.

A substantial part of our income is generated through Box Office and bar sales and from the hire of our facilities within the venue.

The lack of revenue funding to support core costs impacts on our ability to develop our programming and the venue. It also prevents us from continuing our connections with the wider community to develop our audiences particularly amongst those who do not generally visit and share in the joy of live theatre.

We believe we play a key role in the cultural life of Bedford and the surrounding area and in the health and wellbeing of our local community that values the arts and the experience of being part of an audience for live performances.
