'Formed in January 1987 by a small group of people with a common interest in astronomy. We have now grown to approximately 100 members and cater for all ages, levels of interest and abilities. We meet regularly on the last Wednesday of each month where informal get-togethers are interlaced with talks by eminent speakers, and cover topics as far ranging as the birth of the universe, the namings of stars to meteorites and Apollo space missions. Membership of BAS entitles you to attend all the Society's meetings, talks, presentations and Events that are held throughout the year.'

'Established to promote high quality critical and academic research into apocalyptic and millenarian movements across time, place and culture ... An important function of the Centre is promoting public understanding of the issues surrounding the study of apocalyptic and millenarian movements, and the nature and history of those movements in themselves. Thus, the Centre seeks to develop the research and scholars it supports to ensure that their scholarly endeavours are helped to translate into publicly accessible and useful sources of information.'

'The Higgins Bedford unites on one site three previous cultural venues: Cecil Higgins Art Gallery, Bedford Museum and Bedford Gallery. The buildings themselves date back 200 years and have their own rich history of occupation and use, even before they became used for their more recent cultural past ... The Friends of The Higgins Bedford organise a range of events including a fantastic annual lecture programme, summer outings to rarely-seen houses and gardens, and Christmas and summer parties.'
