Work starts on Bradford 2025 HQ

A former restaurant space in Centenary Square is being converted to house offices for the team responsible for the city’s year as UK City of Culture.

Bradford 2025 has signed a three-year lease for the 6,383 sq ft space located on the first floor space opposite Bradford Town Hall.

The property is owned by Yorkshire investor Rushbond, with David Craig Design Consultancy responsible for delivering design and fit-out.

It will become the permanent hub for the growing Bradford 2025 team, who will move from their temporary premises in the corner unit of the same building.

Later this year, the Bradford 2025 space will also include a ground floor information point for public interaction and ticket sales.

David Craig, director of David Craig Design Consultancy, said: “I am delighted to be able to help Bradford 2025 design and deliver a collaborative workspace for their growing team as they ramp up in readiness for an exciting year of culture in our district.

“As a local small business, it’s a great show of confidence from the 2025 team in the talents of homegrown businesses, and I am excited to be able to build on our experience of running the Assembly Bradford creative workspace to create an original, vibrant, functional and accessible space that will be used and visited by so many people in the run up to and throughout 2025.”

Dan Bates, executive director of Bradford 2025, added: “We’re thrilled to have found a permanent space that enables us to remain here, in the heart of the district, over-looking City Park. This place played such an important part in the story of Bradford winning UK City of Culture.

“This is a great central location which will provide the perfect backdrop to plan and deliver an incredible year of district-wide performances, events and festivals to put Bradford on the map on an international stage.”
