Who we are.

Just Purple Presents is a small arts organisation based in Bedford where art and communities are at the heart of all we produce. We aim to enrich the lives of communities through art and culture by producing events and workshops in Bedford that inspire and bring people together.  JPP offers business advice and marketing to small local organisations and works closely with Black and minority communities.

Johanne Hudson-Lett, Creative Director and founder of Just Purple Presents has worked in the arts and media sector for over 20 years for a wide range of business and organisations, including Unilever, BBC Local Radio, UK Centre for Carnival Arts, Hear Me Out and is currently a freelance Young People’s Producer for Revoluton Arts.

Music and drama  has always played a major part in Johanne’s life and running a local children’s community choir for Faith In Queen’s  has spurred her on to create JPP to offer professional opportunities to those who may be from disadvantaged backgrounds. As the Musical Director for Fusion Youth Choir and Band, Johanne is responsible for the repertoire covered and ensures that the young people sing and play music of all genres, from Stevie Wonder to Stephen Sondheim.

What we do!

Workshops & Groups.

Educating, energising and empowering.

Our in-person and online workshops don’t just help people build skills, they help them build communities as well. Workshops are one of the best ways to help disadvantaged and disconnected people cultivate new relationships and feel part of a caring community. Our workshops and groups help people nurture a passion and express their creativity, while enjoying a safe environment in which to be themselves and make friends.

Career Support.

Giving young people direction.

Through our programmes, work experience opportunities and tailored mentoring we help young people build confidence and find a greater sense of purpose. We connect them with role models and professionals to open their eyes to new pathways so they can thrive in whatever they choose to do.

Business Services.

Marketing and consultancy for the arts.

We use our expertise and networks to support arts organisations who want to promote their productions and reach new audiences. Ask us about our marketing and business consultancy services that will help you get noticed and better serve your community.

Community Events.

Representing and celebrating cultural diversity.

Bedfordshire is a glorious melting pot of ethnicities and cultures that deserve celebrating. We put on events that integrate a range of traditions and practices across music, dance, food, fashion and storytelling to foster a sense of inclusion and strengthen community bonds.

Arts Access.

Opening doors to the arts.

Through our connections to local theatre organisations, we support young people and women, especially those from under-represented and disadvantaged backgrounds, to attend and be inspired by a range of performances from classical concerts to immersive theatre.
