Bringing The Beat Back To Bradford


We are delighted to announce our major new project Bringing the Beat Back to Bradford.

Originally built in 1930, and located in the heart of the city, the magnificent building previously known as the Bradford Odeon is being restored to its former glory as an entertainment hub for the city. Ahead of the building’s reopening as Bradford Live, Impressions is working with local people to produce Bringing the Beat Back to Bradford, a brand new crowd-sourced exhibition marking this momentous occasion for the city. The exhibition opening on 4 November 2022 will shine a light on the vibrant history of this much loved building and the many people who have used it. 

Bringing the Beat Back to Bradford is part of a programme of heritage activity commissioned by Bradford Live and funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund to highlight the history of one of Bradford’s most loved buildings and the memories that were made there. It will feature stories from the community, artefacts and memorabilia, oral histories and a mix of official and vernacular photographs. During the exhibition, we are inviting people to share their photographs and stories for display on our memory wall.
