A Festival of Creative Urban Living

26 September – 13 October 2019
Beds United

MK’s unique layout, with many residential areas behind trees and green spaces, means some visitors wonder where people live. Beds United is a way for visitors (and local people) to find out.

The Festival organisers are looking for people to would like to host an overnight guest – whether that’s someone visiting for the Festival or who already lives in a different part of MK. They hope to find at least one host for every neighbourhood.

Hosts will get to meet each other, have dinner at MK Gallery, exchange ideas and stories and also have their portrait taken by a specially commissioned photographer. The Festival team will pair up hosts and guests, and while no money will change hands, hosts will be reimbursed for with any costs for food or laundry.

If you’d like to welcome a guest please email bedsunited.afcul@gmail.com
or fill in the sign up form.
