Bradford 2025 website – Request for proposals

We’re preparing to deliver over 1000 performances and events, over 200 artist commissions and a series of important national and international collaborations during our year as UK City of Culture. To support these ambitious, we’re looking for an agency to design, build and maintain a brand-new Bradford 2025 website.

We’re looking for a website to

Bring our new brand to life. We’re working with a design studio to create an all-new brand and visual identity for Bradford’s year as UK City of Culture 2025; our website needs to feel like a dynamic, accessible, digital world for this new brand identity. 

Create a future-proof ticketing and what’s on platform that will serve Bradford District’s audiences and cultural sector through 2025 and beyond. 

Be mobile-first.  

Be accessible to users with a range of access needs. 

Be multilingual, serving Bradford’s diverse audiences, including people who do not speak English as their main language. Switching between translations of key languages and dialects will be essential. 

It needs to: drive ticket sales, encourage audiences to explore Bradford District and its cultural venues, drive newsletter sign ups, offer value to our partners and funders, and deepen engagement with the stories of Bradford District through quality editorial content. 


We’re looking for an agency which is

Established in the cultural sector and shares our passion for placemaking through art and culture. 

Experienced with ticketing integrations. 

Creative and collaborative – willing to bring new ideas, help us problem solve, and challenge ways of thinking, ideally with in-house UX and design specialism. 


How to apply 

The deadline for proposals is Friday 10 November. Interviews will take place in late November / early December 2023.

Please send your response to both:
