Hyper-local News Website
The Bedford Independent is a new model news organisation with a simple goal: to provide relevant, hyper-local news that serves the local community.
Genuinely local news helps strengthen & bind local communities and Narrative are extremely proud to be part of the Bedford Independent project. We have been admirers of the people behind Bedford Independent for a long time. They have been conceiving & organising events in Bedford, from Pop-Up shops & markets to Fun Palaces, live music events, film festivals and food fairs for around 8 years. Their actions have inspired others and they have been catalysts for reinvigorating a sense of community in the town.
Over the years, Narrative have been privileged to contribute, in our own small way, to some of their other projects including Bedpop, The Bedford Clanger & Explore Bedford.
Bedford Independent is their most ambitious and important initiative. It is a new model, specifically creating hyper-local news that is relevant to its community and we believe they are the perfect people to make it a success.
