About This Post

This year’s national and regional RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Award winners open their doors to the public in an exclusive series of behind the scenes talks and tours.

Discover the story behind the building, the things that have inspired some of the best modern architects and what it means to have won some of the UK’s coveted architecture prizes.

You are invited to join Foster Wilson Architects who will lead a talk and tour of this RIBA Regional Award winning new performing arts centre.  Described as giving ‘both the town and Bedford School a fantastic new flexible performance space’.  The Awards jury were impressed with the way the ‘architects skilfully exploited the existing features of the building, striking a balance between respect for the old and celebration of the new’.

One of four talks in the Great British Buildings series in the East.
