Bradford has an illustrious film heritage dating back to the late 1890’s when the Lumiere brothers played what is arguably the UK’s first commercial film to an audience at the People’s Palace Music Hall in the city centre. Since then film directors have flocked to Bradford to take advantage of the District’s iconic heritage buildings and natural landscapes for hundreds of TV and movie productions.

Join Bradford UNESCO City of Film’s Director, David Wilson and the city’s talented poets who will take you on a unique heritage tour encompassing more than a 100 years of film history interspersed with poetic performances set to shine a literary spot light on the city’s most memorable film moments.

This 90-minute city centre walking tour will take in key production and film locations.
