Bedford Performers Dance show rehearsal at Holy Trinity Hall in Church Lane.


A NORTH Somerset dance and music group will put on another show to add to the thousands of pounds it has already raised for good causes in the past 15 years.

The latest show by the Bedford Performers, entitled Seasons, will include energetic dance routines and musical performances from young and adult participants from across the district.

To be staged at Scotch Horn Leisure Centre in Brockway, Nailsea, from November 24-26, the show will take audiences from the sunshine and showers of spring through to the cold and ice of winter.

Bedford Performers is led my mother and daughter duo, Carol and Michelle Bedford from Nailsea, who have been putting on shows in the town since 1996.

Michelle, aged 45 and a mum-of-four, teaches jazz, ballet, tap and modern dance, and has been holding classes for 25 years. Carol, aged 68, has been teaching piano for 40 years and now also owns Nailsea Music Shop in the town’s High Street.

Over the years they have raised thousands of pounds for good causes including Starlight Children’s Foundation, Jessie May Trust and the Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal though their dance and music shows. This year’s event will collect cash for Cancer Research and will feature performers aged two to 60.

Each date will feature an evening performance, with an afternoon matinee also planned for the Saturday.

Tickets, priced £7-8, are available from Nailsea Music Shop.
