Bradford hosts literature festival

Bradford is to have  a 10-day literature festival this month, bringing in speakers from many foreign countries.

Organisers say the festival has something for everyone: “With the literature festival spearheading Bradford’s cultural renaissance to complement the on-going economic regeneration, these are exciting times for the city.”

They hope the festival will be able to provide a neutral space for talking about difficult issues, whether it is about current affairs, politics, gender or how global conflicts make a local impact.

More details, including festival programme, available here.

The festival takes place 15-24 May.
