Rain fails to put a damper on Queen's Diamond Jubilee joy
Pouring rain and plummeting temperatures failed to dampen Diamond Jubilee fever across the Bradford district as hundreds of people turned out to celebrations held over the weekend.
Visitors danced under their umbrellas to live music from the 1950s, 70s and 90s in Centenary Square today and enjoyed street theatre, face painting and balloon art.
They also posed for photographs next to a giant corgi and crown and watched the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the big screen.
The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Dale Smith, who was at the event promoting his charity appeal, said: “Although Bradford hasn’t got sunshine, there is sunshine in our hearts and we are still entering into the spirit of the Jubilee.”
Angela Jacques, of Thornton, who was with her two children, said: “It’s a shame about the weather but we are enjoying the music. We are holding a street party tomorrow and we wanted to come and see what was going on in Bradford.”
