Operated by Bedford brewing family business Wells & Co., the timing of Brewpoint’s completion is perfect to herald the return of live music to the town.
The three nights in question will feature a hand-picked selection of local acts showcasing their unique sounds at ‘A Taste Of Brewpoint’, the venue’s exterior pop-up bar running for eleven weeks from October 8.
The full lineup will be announced in due course, but the team can already reveal that the weekend will feature The Pride, Bedford’s favourite party band, who will be bringing their set of rocksteady and reggae classics to get the crowd bouncing in their seats.
Enne, a classically trained soulful sound creator and a real blender favourite, joins the programme fresh from a successful debut show at London’s Jazz Cafe.
Alan Cooley of blender explains: “Our community are a discerning bunch; we stake our reputation on producing engaging line-ups with quality sound for select events.
“We look forward to welcoming that community down to Brewpoint for a good time. No local business has attempted something like this during these extremely difficult times, and we’re enthusiastic about supporting that ambition.
“Since lockdown, we have been constantly seeking out opportunities to provide local musicians with a place and platform to perform amidst all this chaos. Our stint at A Taste Of Brewpoint will be the icing on the cake.”
Peter Wells of Wells & Co. adds: “After the deafening silence that has been much of 2020 for live music fans, we at Brewpoint couldn’t be more excited to invite the blender team to host a housewarming party for our new home later this month.
“A Taste of Brewpoint is the perfect space to provide a safe, socially distanced yet truly welcoming experience for beer and music fans alike.
“Combined with the welcome news that our friends at (Bedford live music venue) Esquires will be reopening their doors from early November, it really feels as though Bedford is leading the charge for Covid-safe gigs at present, and we’re proud to play a part in that renaissance.”
