Local & Live 2019: Sunday at The Bedford

Sunday August 25th 2019, 2:00pm - 9:00pm at The Bedford (see venue details and map).

Part of Local & Live Festival 2019 : Sunday.

Local & Live is delighted to be working with The Bedford Pub in association with The Jay Harmer Foundation and The Acoustic Valium Project.

Having been suffering from cancer, from the age of 12, Jay Harmer was officially diagnosed at 14 with bone cancer. After several operations, Jay was in remission at 17 but sadly the disease returned and he lost his brave battle on 29th June 2018 at the age of 19. Jay was always more concerned about those around him than his own wellbeing and touched many many hearts in his short but influential journey through this world. The Jay Harmer Foundation has been set up to raise money for amazing associated charities whilst having fun and encouraging others to have fun too. Charities to be supported will include The Royal Marsden Hospital, My Shining Star and Clic Sargent. You can find us on Facebook and on Twitter.

In association with The Jay Harmer Foundation.
