Wed 11 Aug - Thu 26 May Being Young in Bradford
Wed 11 Aug - Thu 26 May Jadughor: The Magic Room


Drawing upon the experiences of six residents who grew up during the vibrant music scene of 1970s Bradford, the exhibition will celebrate the heritage of youth in the city and display a range of personal collection items relating to Punk, Bradford bands, Sound System DJs, Scooters and Northern Soul.

The exhibition is a partnership between Bradford Museums & Galleries and Being Bradford - a group of working class mavericks that have organised themselves into a sort of artistic trade union and whose primary aim to see their authentic story told by themselves and featuring in the city of Bradford’s cultural narrative.

During lockdown social media will be used to provide a sneak preview of the show and to invite Bradford Residents to post about their own experiences of being a teenager in the city, starting with those growing up in the 1970s and 80s.
