Bradford 2025

Bradford 2025 will be a game changer for Bradford, breathing new life into the city and injecting a huge boost of confidence to our strong and diverse cultural sector.

Supporting and contributing to the cultural sector in Bradford is already a key priority for the University. On Campus, Theatre in the Mill hosts a diverse schedule of events and activities throughout the year and is also the lead partner on the Bradford Producing Hub. Across the University, we have a wealth of experience and expertise which we are keen to utilise in our role as a key partner to the Bradford 2025 Bid.

The University’s vision is a world of inclusion and equality of opportunity for all. The partnership between the University and Bradford 2025 is a fantastic example of how we can achieve this vision, engaging our communities and creating opportunities for the people that live here.
