About us

Bradford Big Screen sits at the heart of the vibrant City Park which sees on average 500,000 people passing through every month. For events there can be as many as 150,000 people gathered in the space and increasingly we are seeing the screen feature as part of many events.

Our remit is to entertain and inform and so we screen a mix of local and national news, cultural and sporting content seven days a week, 7am until 11pm. We also host our own events like the Royal Opera House screenings and we have the facility to host events for other organisations, working closely alongside the council events team.

Our content segments include

    Not Just Hockney art exhibition

    12:30 pmBradford's Big Screen

    NOT JUST HOCKNEY

    AN EXCITING EXHIBITION ON BRADFORD BIG SCREEN SHARING THE WORK OF HUNDREDS OF ARTISTS FROM ACROSS THE DISTRICT WITH VISITORS TO THE CITY. ON THE SCREEN EVERY DAY AT 1230

    Not Just Hockney is the brainchild of amateur arts enthusiast Colin Neville. The exhibition features work from painters, ceramists, textile and jewellery makers. Artists involved say the project gives them vital outdoor “gallery” space after harsh economic times have seen many local galleries closing. If you can't get down to the screen watch the exhibition here.

    January and February's exhibition - Artist's Choice

    Artists

    Jonathan Cooke (Stained Glass Artist)
    In contrast to the demands of monumental scale work such as Cliffe Castle's grand staircase window, which I completed last year, I create small, intricately detailed, often quirky narrative panels using traditional stained glass techniques - to commission, for exhibitions, and sometimes simply because an idea won't go away…

    Chrissie Freeth (Tapestry Weaver)
    I weave tapestries on a large traditional loom using hand-dyed wool. My work is inspired by academic research of medieval tapestries but reimagined for contemporary relevance. At the loom I confront and reshape my own memories and experiences and seek to capture a more universal female experience.

    Margaret Naylor (Jewellery Designer)
    My jewellery design is primarily influenced by the connectivity between elements in their raw state and their potential to be made into expressive items of jewellery. Texture and scale are important aspects to much of my work, and through the combination of flowing lines and geometry, I attempt to create individual pieces that display qualities of timeless elegance and fluidity.

    Ben Snowden (Contemporary Artist)
    My artwork explores the relationships and ideas between subject and emotion, and is Inspired by the natural world, poetry and memory.  I use the language of abstraction to create work that emphasises mood and expression to determine the overall feeling of the paintings. I predominantly work with enamel, spray paint, graphite and household paints on materials such as paper, board, card, textiles, and wood that I find.

    David Starley (Artist/Painter)
    I am professional artist, based in Saltaire and also run the Bingley Gallery as an outlet for my own and other local artists’ work.  I paint in oils, which are applied thickly in an impasto technique using a painting knife to produce an almost sculpted image. Whilst perhaps best known for my views of trees and woodland, other subjects include local landscapes and mountain scenery.

    Simon Sugden (Photographer)
    I’m a local photographer, based now just outside Keighley. I’ve been doing photography now for over 10 years with a passion for landscapes, urban decay and architecture amongst other things. The photographs on the Big Screen are all taken from my new book, ‘Derelict Britain: Beauty in Decay’.  This is my first book, and I’m proud to say that it’s already received recognition from the Royal Photographic Society.

    Bradford UNESCO City of Film, David Wilson said: “Some of the artists we are working with are well known but others are not and so we’re delighted to be supporting local creativity. The images and photographs of the work are stunning and will no doubt draw some real attention in City Park.”

    Not Just Hockney will run every day at 1230 on Bradford Big Screen. Six different artists will feature  bi-monthly.  For more see http://www.notjusthockney.info/
