 The Bedford Music Hall, which opened in 1861, was situated at 123-133 Camden High Street in London's Camden Town.

It was demolished in 1898 and a new theatre, The Bedford Palace of Varieties, was built on the site; this eventually closed down in 1959.

Both the old and the new theatres featured in paintings by the artist Walter Sickert, a member of the Camden Town Group.
