Day trip to the Higgins museum & Art Gallery in Bedford
Thursday 24 May 2018

Our sister society in Beckenham has offered us places on their day trip to the Higgins Museum and Art Gallery in Bedford.

The Higgins Museum and Art Gallery was founded by the philantrophic brewer, Cecil Higgins, to house his collection of ceramics, glass, watercolours, prints and decorative arts. The art gallery and museum inhabit a number of historic buildings, including The Higgins House.The displays here introduce the family and explore Cecil Higgins' collection in terms of how the objects might have originally been used and what they said about the people who used them. As well as the Higgins family home and the Higgins Brewery buildings, there is the Hexagonal Gallery which is the oldest part of the site, and Bedford Gallery, a Grade II listed building.
