The Harpur Trust Children’s Art Competition
and Exhibition

For over 450 years The Harpur Trust has been inspiring and supporting the people of Bedford to help them improve their lives. We provide, promote and support education, and provide University bursaries to Bedford students. We also give grants to local community projects that benefit Bedford, and run activities and events in partnership with key partners.

Our Children’s Art Competition runs every two years in partnership with The Higgins Bedford and Bedford Borough Council. It is open to all local school children and young people aged 4-18. All entries feature in our online exhibition, and a selection are chosen for public display in an exhibition at The Higgins during the summer.
