What's on


We are excited to be starting live music back at The Bedford again however due to Covid-19 we have had to make some fundamental changes to the way the evenings run in order to make sure the environment is safe for everyone.

Tonight’s show is £10 everyone needs to book in advance – there is a ticket link below.

Sadly we have limited capacity and no ability for people to walk in and stand. Everyone is required to have a seat. There will be a full menu and table service throughout the night to look after you all.

For anyone unable to make it in person we will be streaming the show live (our 17th year of live streaming) via our Facebook page – www.facebook.com/thebedfordpub

Doors open at 7:30 pm and we ask everyone to come early enough and stay long enough to enjoy all the performances as we are unable to use a table for other people if you arrive late, leave early or aren’t able to make it. Current guidelines only permit tables of six or two households or bubbles.  Thank you for understanding.

This evening we have live music from:




Enchanting. Ethereal. Emotive. Three words that music blog ‘FLEX’ uses to describe Ena Fay’s single release ‘Because I Care’ on 26th March 2021. “Detailed with Ena’s unique and alluring tone, her vocals have subtle essences of early Kate Bush and Irene Skylakaki combined, making it unique, memorable and authentic”, Purple Melon music blog have to add. Currently based in London, UK, the Irish/German singer-songwriter is making waves and pushing boundaries as an independent artist.

With her fans being a part of the journey every step of the way, she is now putting on a crowdfunded concert to celebrate the release of the second EP ‘I Can Feel It, Too’, which is coming out on Friday 18th June 2021. After putting on her own event with the 5-piece band in Belfast at The Crescent Arts Centre in Summer 2019 already, London is eagerly awaiting this concert to finally happen on the stage of the iconic clubroom at The Bedford Pub in Balham, home also to the likes of Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith.

The live music side being an incredibly important part of Ena Fay’s artistry, the latest release ‘Because I Care’ just had to include a live music performance video, which received 50 individual pieces of press support across 30 different platforms, such as ‘Music Crowns, ‘Caoba Records’, ’When The Horn Blows’ and ‘Broadway World’. The theatrical side of her stage performance was also recognised earlier already by Wilton’s Music Hall, one of the oldest grand music halls in the world, who invited Ena to take part in their Music4All festival for Emerging Talent 2020. This has now been postponed to 2022 due to the pandemic.

For now, please look forward to the upcoming live performance in South East London on Wednesday 23rd June. With lyrics like “how can I let you go, I want you too, would miss you so”, Ena Fay will gladly welcome you back to the wonderful live music scene and introduce you to her musical world of care, hope, and, of course, wanting more.

“Ena in a 50s style sparkling suit and wavy hair, reminding Marlene Dietrich glow, domains the stage with elegance and grace.” – YMX Music Blog

“Getting to the very heart of each and every listener, Ena Fay’s emotional delivery has a way of warming the you from the inside out. With it’s haunting beauty and all-encompassing sentimentality, ‘Because I Care’ marks the start of what is to be a remarkable year for Ena Fay.” – FLEX music blog

One of the main things that makes ‘Tie My Hands’ and its accompanying visuals so special is its hugely emotive appeal. It is evident that Fay has boundless creativity and authentic storytelling, which makes it very easy to like her. – When The Horn Blows music blog
