What's on


We are excited to be starting live music back at The Bedford again, however, due to the Covid-19 situation, 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.

Tonights show is FREE entry, but everyone needs to book in advance – there will be a ticket link below – Sadly we have limited capacity and no ability for people to walk in and stand, everyone needs to have a seat, There will of course 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 steaming) via the facebook page – www.facebook.com/thebedfordpub

Doors open at 7pm 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. Thank you for understanding

This evening we have live music from:

8.30pm – Tootawl

9.30pm – Ben Roberts

(free) Ticket LINK





Standing at six foot five, Irishman Richard O’ Gorman was christened ‘too tawl’ whilst in Nashville, Tennessee, playing his brand of bustling contemporary folk in famous venues such as The Bluebird. Upon his arrival home to Ireland, he began working as Tootawl.

Since Tennessee, Tootawl has released two EPs and an album, received national radio airplay, and toured extensively. He also had his song ‘House On The Moon’ played in an episode of the Netflix original series ‘You Me Her’.

Now based in London, he has signed with Max Music Publishing, and released his debut self-titled LP in June of this year. Taking the DIY approach, the album was recorded entirely live to tape on an old reel-to-reel tape machine, and the cover is a tintype photograph, taken by specialist photographer Gareth Jarvis in Wales. Recently, Tootawl successfully completed a crowdfunding project on Qrates.com to get the album printed on vinyl.
