The Friends work hard to raise important funds to pay for improvements to the museum and its collections.


This friendly and active group organises several events each year, including talks, visits, music and social events.

Becoming a Friend helps support the museum.

Bunyan's Hidden Highlights

Bunyan's Hidden Highlights is a series of short films using places in and around Bedford and items from the John Bunyan Museum's collection to illustrate the ways Bunyan is remembered and celebrated around the country. Both series were created with the help of our wonderful museum volunteers and the Friends of the John Bunyan Museum.
