The Higgins

On 12th March 2013 the Club had an interesting talk from Tom Perrett about the The Higgins, the combined Bedford Museum, Cecil Higgins Museum and Art Gallery, to be re-opned in Spring 2013 after extensive redevelopment. Tom gave a very interesting talk which included how photographers can benefit from The Higgins, including exhibitions (look out for the Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition to be shown here), they are permitting photography within the museum and “Higgins Inspired” photographs are welcome in their FLICKR gallery.
