Warme lead singer Lee Walsh said: “Yorkshire Music Box here in Bradford is a brilliant opportunity for local talent. There is so much creativity in this area and I hope that us getting a slot on Music Box inspires new and young musicians to carry on making music and putting it out there for people to hear.”
Bradford UNESCO Director of Film, David Wilson said: “We’ve been delighted with the response to Yorkshire Music Box from local bands, singers and songwriters. The quality of the acts and some of the filmmaking techniques used to capture them really needs to be celebrated more widely.
“The screen in City Park is a great platform for any artist – with more than 500,000 people passing by every month. We’re welcoming all types of music from pop to folk to classical. I hope Yorkshire Music Box will also give people access to music they may never have listened to before.”

The North in Focus
THE NORTH IN FOCUS PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION
A daily photographic archive exhibition on the Big Screen in partnership with Bradford UNESCO City of Film and Bradford Museums and Galleries
1215 and 1710 daily Bradford Big Screen
To mark the 80th birthday of the city's celebrated artist, David Hockney, this North in Focus exhibition features views of Bradford during his student days in the fifties.
While celebrations are being held from Cartwright Hall and throughout the rest of the world to mark his birthday, this selection of images by CH Wood focuses on Bradford from 1953 to 1957 when David Hockney was a student at Bradford School of Art. On his daily journeys between the college and his home in Eccleshill he would have passed through the scenes viewed here.
While David Hockney was starting his artistic journey, Bradford was also at the beginning of a period which would see whole areas of the city transformed during the following decade.
The David Hockney Gallery, a permanent celebration of David Hockney’s life and work, is now open at Cartwright Hall Art Gallery.
The North in Focus is a permanent exhibition on Bradford’s Big Screen every day at 1215 and 1710 curated exclusively for the screen by Bradford Museums & Galleries. The exhibition often features previously unseen images from Bradford Museums Photo Archive.
