The Broadway is welcoming a star-studded, dazzling display of lights on Saturday 10 November, when we host The Festive Launch!

VIP guests and performers include X-Factor alumni Rebecca Ferguson and Union J as well as local singing sensation Thomas Lillywhite and ex-Love Island finalist Wes Nelson.

All the action starts from midday as the City of Bradford Brass Band perform Christmas classics, followed by the Festive Pitch Battle in partnership with Pulse 1, which will see six local school choirs fight it out in a one-off singing competition to win a £1,000 cash prize.

Musical performances will follow at 4.30pm, with the spectacular Christmas light display being switched on at 6.30pm.

A Christmas Craft Market, outdoor Christmas Bar and funfair will be running throughout the day between Kirkgate and The Broadway.
