Next month The Bedford, one of South London’s most popular music venues, will reopen following a multi-million pound refurbishment.

The venue is operated by the award-winning Three Cheers Pub Co and has a reputation for championing grass-roots music. The newly refurbished venue will feature five bars, four private rooms, a restaurant and 15 boutique hotel rooms.

In the past The Bedford has hosted huge stars such as Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini, Sam Smith and Jack Savoretti before they went on to conquer the charts.

On hearing of its reopening, Ed Sheeran commented, “I loved playing The Bedford in Balham – it was such an important venue on the circuit and always had great acts playing every night. It holds fond memories for me and I look forward to coming back one day”.

The Bedford’s stage will showcase a brand new state-of-the-art sound and lighting system, featuring top quality lighting rigs and acoustic-enhancing tools.

Tony Moore (ex-Iron Maiden and Cutting Crew) will continue to do the programming at the venue. He’s a respected music industry veteran with razor sharp A&R and talent spotting skills.

Tony states, ‘Over the last decade and a half that I’ve been booking and curating music at The Bedford, I am proud of how many incredible artists have taken off since their time with us. From 2019 onwards, I know that we will be able to do even more to help artists achieve even greater success with our brand new world class, stage, lights and audio system.’
