About the Bedford

A huge converted Victorian Hotel, The Bedford is now a cornerstone for London’s thriving live music, comedy and entertainment scenes.

In the late sixties and seventies it was a spit and sawdust live music venue serving as a springboard for early gigs by acts including The Clash and U2.

The legendary Live Music nights have witnessed stunning early performances by the likes of Ed Sheeran, The Staves, James Bay and many others, as well as providing a wonderful backdrop for performances by established artists including Pete Townshend, Crowded House, KT Tunstall and other superstars.

And the 30 year old Banana Cabaret has nourished acts including Michael McIntyre, The Mighty Boosh, Omid Djalil and recent America’s Got Talent winer, Paul Zerdin.


The Bedford – delivering stunning entertainment for over 200 years.
