The Next 50 Years

It’s 50 years since the first Bedford Park Festival in 1967 and lots has changed since then. We asked children to think life will change in the NEXT 50 years. Lots of them used their imagination to take part in these competitions. The Festival was opened by Maggie Philbin OBE, former presenter of the BBC’s Tomorrow’s World and founder of TeenTech, who judged the Children’s Fancy Dress Competition.

Electric Vehicle Zone
