Bradford Arts

Bradford is the world's first UNESCO City of Film. The title was awarded because of the city’s rich film heritage, its inspirational movie locations and its many celebrations of the moving image through the National Media Museum and the city’s annual film festivals.  

Bradford has a flourishing arts scene...fascinating exhibitions...energetic theatres...compelling stacks of live music to keep you enthralled.

We're proud of our cultural heritage. This city was the birthplace of the famous artist David Hockney, and you can thrill to over 400 of his works at Salts Mill.

Bradford District is home to some of the most exciting museums and galleries in Yorkshire. From the Baroque splendour of Cartwright Hall Art Gallery to the intimacy of Ilkley's Manor House Museum and Art Gallery, there is always something new to do or see.
