  1. Van Gogh Alive Credit Richard Blake
    This autumn, Regency Hall will host the Yorkshire premiere of Van Gogh Alive, ‘the world’s most visited immersive, multi-sensory experience’ that exhibits the life and work of the seminal Dutch artist. Following a smash hit run in Edinburgh as the must-see cultural event of the summer, visitors will be treated to a truly world-class cultural experience in the heart of Bradford which was recently crowned UK City of Culture 2025.
