Statement on Bradford LIVE and NEC

Updated: May 15

Following this evenings BBC Look North broadcast, we understand the mounting speculation surrounding NEC's involvement with Bradford Live. The reopening of the former Odeon cinema as a performance venue is Bradford's hope for city centre regeneration. In recent weeks, doubts about the future of the project have grown after the NEC Group have refused to confirm their involvement and if the venue is still on track to open later this year under their management.

We understand the frustrations of residents, business owners and our members in this time of uncertainty. The collaboration between both parties involved with the project promises significant opportunities for Bradford and we urge both parties to provide a clear and factual response shortly. Bradford at Night is willing to offer any support possible to help both parties keep the project on track for a successful launch.
