Did you know Bradford has its own Literature Festival? Over a hundred events celebrating the written and spoken word, from 15 to 24 May 2015, in a host of venues around the city.
The Festival has a distinctively Bradfordian flavour:

- Experience a Brontë heritage bus tour with local TV news legend Christa Ackroyd
- Venture into the Undercliffe necropolis – at twilight …
- Rediscover famous Bradfordians Humbert Wolfe and William Rothenstein and the city’s forgotten Jewish heritage
- Explore the incredible textiles of India and the riches of Urdu poetry
- Find out how Bollywood films portray male (often shirtless) beauty and style
Not to mention colleagues from Peace Studies at the University sharing their fascinating research: Dr Munro Price on Napoleon‘s downfall and Professor Paul Rogers discussing the rise of ISIS.
