Said well-established businessman and owner of Utilitrack, Enzo Testa:

“We saw this as a great opportunity to bring people into the town and at the same time support local businesses. It is an event for people of all communities to enjoy.”

The Italian Festival is part of a range of events being staged across the Borough of Bedford to support a major multi-cultural SpectaculARTS event being staged at Bedford Park on September 7th.

Founder of SpectaculARTS, which is a Community Interest Company, is Sharon De Leonardis. She has great plans for an performing arts and cultural event to be held in the years between the biennial Bedford River Festival

Keeping up the Italian Connection, Guy A . Moliterno has accepted the honour of being Ambassador for SpectularARTS. Guy is well known in the local business community and in 2014 was appointed Honorary Consul of Italy.
