CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

With Government guidance announced to help stop the spread of coronavirus, Bedford Borough Council is announcing some changes to our facilities and services at this extraordinary time.

As has been seen with other UK performance venues, the decision has been taken to close Bedford Corn Exchange for the time being.

We are currently managing all cancellations of shows and events on a rolling basis and are keeping the timeframe for this under constant review. We are seeking to reschedule performances for a later date wherever possible.

Where performances are rescheduled, tickets already purchased will be valid for the new date. Refunds will be issued for customers who are unable to attend the rescheduled date. For any cancelled performances, customers will be issued with a refund.

Our front of house team will be in contact with all affected customers in due course. Please bear with us during this time as we have a large number of customers to contact.

We will keep you up-to-date as the situation changes. Thank you for your understanding and continued support during this challenging time. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

The music of Pink Floyd as it was meant to be experienced….

There are tribute bands and then there are tribute bands… With members who have worked with
the likes of David Bowie, Janet Jackson, Jon Bon Jovi, Brian Adams and Keith Emerson, and others
who have performed on Broadway and in the Royal Albert Hall, The Floyd Effect isn’t just a bunch
of enthusiasts who love the music of Pink Floyd, it’s a band of the highest calibre that loves the music of Pink Floyd.

Following their sell out Wall Around The Moon show in 2019 The Floyd Effect will be returning to Bedford in 2021 with The Dark Side Of Reason. This highlights Pink Floyd’s multi-platinum 1987 release, A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, the album that re-launched the band and saw its sell-out worldwide tour scale greater heights than ever before. A Momentary Lapse Of Reason also forms the core of a Pink Floyd box set released in November 2019, Pink Floyd: The Later Years, so The Floyd Effect’s timing couldn’t be better.

The Dark Side of Reason will also feature a complete, unbroken performance of the iconic
Dark Side Of The Moon as well as tracks from seminal albums including Wish You Were
Here and The Wall. There will even be a nod toward Pink Floyd’s post-psychedelic era
with music from their transitional album, Meddle.

Rightly renowned for the remarkable accuracy with which it performs the Pink Floyd canon,
The Floyd Effect faithfully recreates the music and intensity of a Pink Floyd concert
without recourse to racks of computers and other technological wizardry. Each performance is a genuine ‘live’ event, supported by a dramatic light show that incorporates the iconic circular screen
together with two sets of projections that make it a powerful and emotional experience.

Sit back and enjoy The Floyd Effect as the band takes you on a journey through the music of
Pink Floyd. Unless you were there the first time around, it was never as real as this.
