Hope to see YOU at the river festival

7 July 2016

We’re looking forward to seeing long-standing and new supporters at the Bedford River Festival the weekend after next!

As you know, if you’re a regular follower of our website news and social media, we’ll be ‘on stage’ with our Kiss-in at Mill Meadows from 11am on the Saturday (July 16) and we’ll have a stand nearby throughout the event.

We hope you’ll come and say ‘hello’.

Star turns at the Kiss-in will be MP for North-East Bedfordshire Alistair Burt and his wife Eve. They’ll be kissing then chatting with our compere (Anita from Bedford’s In2Beats urban radio station) about what makes their relationship work for them.



Other guests will follow them on to the Mill Meadows’ community stage – and you too can as well if you wish! Anita will be inviting the audience to take part.

We’re at the river festival to promote our work with couples of all ages who want to strengthen their relationships. ‘Too many people still see Relate only as a last resort – when a relationship has started to crumble,’ says Relate Bedfordshire and Luton CEO Angela Foll, who is also ‘telling all’ at the Kiss-in with her husband Ian. ‘But at Relate we also work hard to make good relationships even better – and all our research points to people in good relationships having a better, healthier lifestyle.’

The river festival will be followed by a workshop at the end of July where couples will be able to talk about intimacy. Called ‘Touch me, Feel me, Love me’, the workshop is the next event in our ‘Time for Us’ series. Here are the details:
