All Saints Church has a long choral tradition. In 1847 Thomas Webster, a member of the Cranbrook Colony, painted his famous picture, "A Village Choir" using the Church for his setting and Bow Brickhill residents as the characters. Prints are available for purchase from the Victoria & Albert Museum www.vam.ac.uk 

A Village Choir by Thomas Webster

Bow Brickhill by Stanley Roy Badmin

This  watercolour by Stanley Roy Badmin (1906-1989)  was painted in 1940 under the "Recording Britain" scheme, which was launched in that year by the Ministry of Labour with a grant from the Pilgrim Trust. 

It followed on from an idea by Kenneth Clark and was primarily an unemployment scheme for artists.

The collection of 1,549 watercolours was given into the care of the Victoria and Albert Museum.
