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’ve all come up with an imaginative and creative way to raise awareness for the bid.

Regency Hall, the events and conference space, joins as a Bid Partner. Every evening from dusk from this week,  he exterior wall of the Grade II listed building will be illuminated with a colourful large-scale projection of our Bradford 2025 identity. 

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

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

Yaseen Mohammed and Saleem Akhtar of Jinnah and Mick Chandsoor, Bradford 2025.

Jinnah, the Bradford-based restaurant group, 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 has 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. 

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