Statements of support from our new partners

Bradford 2025 is on restaurants, lorries and a landmark building – all thanks to our new partners.

We’ve welcomed three new corporate partners on board and they have all come up with an imaginative and creative way to raise awareness for the bid.

Events and conference space Regency Hall joins as a Bid Partner. From this week, every evening from dusk the exterior wall of the Grade-II listed building will be illuminated with a colourful large-scale projection of our BD25 identity. 

The space is owned by local entrepreneur and broadcaster Raj Parmar, who also runs Sunrise Radio, one of our Media Partners who have been broadcasting in Bradford for over 31 years. 

Raj Parmar, Director of Sunrise Radio and Regency Hall and Rick Shaw, Director of Bradford 2025.

Bradford-based restaurant group, Jinnah, joins as a Founding Partner. The family-run business began as a corner shop in Bradford in 1981 before opening restaurants in Harrogate, Selby, York city centre and at Flaxton, near York. 

Jinnah have branded the roof of their events marquee in the grounds of their city centre restaurant on Leeds Road, added colourful vinyls to the restaurant windows and installed a Bradford 2025 banner on the busy roadside. 

Our new Bid Partner, Expect Distribution, a family-run logistics and warehouse company, has branded a number of its fleet with the BD25 logo. The trucks will travel the length of the country flying the flag for Bradford 2025.

Rick Shaw, Director of Bradford 2025 and Neil Rushworth, Managing Director of Expect Distribution.
