Children's songs for peace open Bradford Festival

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Tatiana, a first year pupil at Princeville Primary School in Bradford, was among more than 500 children whose songs for peace opened Bradford Festival today Tatiana, a first year pupil at Princeville Primary School in Bradford, was among more than 500 children whose songs for peace opened Bradford Festival today

MORE than 500 schoolchildren joyfully sang songs of peace and friendship to open Bradford Festival in Centenary Square today.

Pupils from across the district have been rehearsing for months to prepare for the 'Big Sing for Peace,' and crowds gathered as they belted out versions of classic songs such as 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough', 'Consider Yourself' and 'Three Little Birds'.

Opening the event, the newly-inaugurated Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Mike Gibbons, said: "It is great to see you all here.

"You are the future of a peaceful world. We want you to make friends with each other, make friends across the district, and make friends across the world."

Before they sang, the pupils met at special peace workshops to make poppies and kites, and also enjoyed storytelling sessions in the festival's Kids Story Zone.

Tonight's evening line-up on the main stage includes local alternative acoustic-rock band, Man Can't Fly, inventive five-piece, Wilful Missing, feisty folk duo, Waiting for Wednesday, and rock roots act, Angelo Pallandino.

The festival continues until Sunday.

What Bradford Festival? First I'm hearing of it. This Labour group haven't made much of an attempt to publicise it.

I hadn't heard about the Bradford Festival either. I suppose all of Visit Bradford's money will have gone on the Tour. Seems a real shame, a lot of work must have gone into rehearsing those kids.

I live on the outskirts and I hadn’t heard anything about the Festival at all. Certainly the Tour has dominated everything where I live, but I’m sure it would have been possible to generate a bit of anticipation for the Festival. Bradford never seems to know how to maximise its chances.

To be fair I think I knew about the Bradford Festival, but only because it’s an annual event. I certainly haven’t seen any publicity this year or even a programme of events. However it turns out they do have a website

www bradfordfestival org uk

if you are interested. It looks very multicultural as befits our city. You would have thought that, after going to all this trouble, the Council would have sounded the trumpets and banged the gong. Who is responsible for the publicity?

Councillor Hinchcliffe. Along with today’s apprenticeship story this is another job she has failed to do properly. Her portfolio is too big. Cllr. Green should strip it right back to just Regeneration so she can concentrate on Bradford’s big problem.

Won’t happen. Cllr’s get extra cash for every “responsibility”
. Most of then don’t work and rely on their pay as a Councillor. They maximise their wage by stretching themselves too thin. The result is total incompetence.

Paying Councillors was a complete mistake. It opened the door to all kinds of corruption. Councillors should work for free out of sense of duty and be pleased to be contributing to the public good.

I know people will say that this excludes poor folk. But poor people have failed the exam set by life whereas rich people have passed it; and I certainly don’t want my life governing by people who can’t make a success of their own.

Councillor Hinchcliffe has made a complete mess of running the apprenticeship scheme, Buck Lane and Visit Bradford. She should be considering her position.

Superb that the Bradford Festival is happening once again. Last years events were fantastic with thousands of folk attending over the three days. I'm sure this years events will be even more successful. A great move by Bradford Council to get this excellent local festival up and running again. We'll be going down to sample the brilliant atmosphere again tomorrow.

You definitely work for the Council. Your post reads like one of their press releases and, as usual, you've missed the point.

The issue isn't whether the Festival's a good thing or not; it's whether the Council, after ploughing thousands of pounds of our tax money into it, then went on to do a half reasonable job of publicising it. The answer appears to be no. In other words it was the Council at its unprofessional best.

I do hope the T&A will ignore such obvious attempts at manipulation by the Council and the ruling Labour Group. Entirely defeats the point of these forums.

Thanks, I've known about the Bradford Festival for a while, it's been mentioned in the T&A on numerous occasions. Obviously not everyone sees everything that is printed but there was a great turnout last year with what seems to me the same sort of publicity, there was plenty of folk there today. It's in full swing tomorrow and the Mela returns on Sunday. I'd hate the council to spend too much cash on publicity and City Park can only cope with so many folk visiting it.

My small son was one of the ones singing outside the town hall. I was so proud of him. Along with everybody else I had a very good time, but I have to agree that there has not been much publicity for the Festival. We had a letter from the school but apart from that there has been nothing.

Yes, I heard it went well for the kids and teachers. I new about the Bradford Festival weeks ago, in fact it is now an annual event again thanks to the present Bradford Council. Regarding publicity for it, it was heaving today so I guess many folk did know in advance but not everyone new as you yourself mention. It has been publicised in the T&A and on the Pulse.

Last years events were fantastic with thousands of folk attending over the three days. I'm sure this years events will be even more successful. A great move by Bradford Council to get this excellent local festival up and running again. We'll be going down to sample the brilliant atmosphere again tomorrow.[/p][/quote]My small son was one of the ones singing outside the town hall. I was so proud of him. Along with everybody else I had a very good time, but I have to agree that there has not been much publicity for the Festival. We had a letter from the school but apart from that there has been nothing.[/p][/quote]Yes, I heard it went well for the kids and teachers.

Songs for peace, not much peace in these posts. Shame that, maybe if people started to work together instead of having a go at each other we might actually get somewhere in Bradford.
Coming from someone who viciously attacks anyone who is a not a handout grabbing socialist, that really did make me laugh!!
To that I can only say LOL, SS, lovely initials by the way, I hope you have a super day, but one thing I can never be accused of is attacking, I may vigorously defend people, but I NEVER attack.
You see what you did there Del? Very passive aggressive!

Congratulations on "not attacking me" or implying I'm a nazi!!
Yes but isn't it also important to note Sinner Saint, that what I wrote only came in RESPONSE to your post, whereas my post was quite clearly a desire for people to stop sniping at each other on this comments section. Once again, have a beautiful day, and if you're a dad, happy father's day :-)
