The prestigious title of UK City of Culture 2025 signifies a city coming into its power

Beyond the cultural prestige, the title of UK City of Culture 2025 is expected to stimulate economic growth and showcase Bradford on the global stage. Our vibrant city and district are set to host more than 1,000 performances and events attracting approximately 15m visitors, creating more than 3,000 jobs and £700m growth.

The City of Culture title has also cemented Bradford's reputation in the creative industry, attracting filmmakers and TV companies drawn to its unique culture and its heritage assets. As the world's first UNESCO City of Film, Bradford is home to the National Science and Media Museum - the country's top attraction dedicated to image, sound, and broadcast media. Our IMAX theatre, Europe's first, still boasts the region's largest screen and cinema enthusiasts worldwide come to the Pictureville cinema, which is the only global venue to screen "three strip" analogue Cinerama movies - a ground-breaking technology that forever transformed cinema and television.

Saltaire is one of only two UNESCO world heritage sites in Yorkshire. This treasure trove showcases the district’s industrial and built heritage, while serving as a gallery for the works of Bradford-born artist David Hockney

This intertwining of history, art, and music gives Bradford a charm that further solidifies its status as the perfect place to invest. With the expected economic growth, infrastructural improvements, job creation, and increased tourism, investors can anticipate a high return on investment in this vibrant, growing city attracting international attention.
