Kings Reach Biggleswade, Bedford

Taylor Wimpey, Martin Grant Homes have appointed HAPPEN to manage and implement an ambitious Public Art programme at the King’s Reach development, Biggleswade. The programme will deliver a number of principal artworks, with linked multiple satellite pieces by three individual artists; integrated as far as possible with the overall design of the public realm.

There are three commissions:

  • Music of the Spheres
  • Growing communities
  • Buried treasure

The Role of HAPPEN

HAPPEN has developed a Public Art Commissioning Framework for Kings Reach, which outlines the wider Public Art programme for this development, including guiding principles, suitable sites and opportunities, and the practicalities of delivery. Three artists have been appointed to carry forward these commissions and there is a now a website, where even more can be found out about this exciting project.
