Fri 7 - Sun 9 Sep Bradford Bubble Up


The Bradford Bubble Up will be a huge party to celebrate the hidden currents running through our city – not only our secret waterways, but also our creativity and spirit.

Creative workshops, exhibitions, performances, dance, music, and art installations will bubble up in unexpected places including empty buildings, alleyways and numerous neglected and under loved corners across the city. Visitors will be invited right into the heart of the action to be immersed in, explore and experience every nook and cranny.

The full programme will be released on 7th August but here are a few highlights:

- Launch party at the National Science and Media Museum
- Build castles, marvel at sculptures, relax at the Bradford urban beach
- Mass interactive dance performance in the Mirror Pool
- A giant waterslide will make use of Darley Street's steep slope
- Make your mark as part of a water-inspired mural
- An inclusive underwater-themed disco curated by learning disabled young people
- Follow the route of Bradford Beck with performances and live art turns
- See Ivegate brought to life
- Take a sonic walk through Bradford with sounds inspired by your location
- See films and photography inspired by Bradford Beck
