IF you were a Mod, a punk, a rocker or a soul boy, you may just re-discover your youth in a vibrant exhibition at Cartwright Hall.

Being Young in Bradford, running until August 30, draws upon the experiences of six people who grew up during the vibrant music scene of 1970s Bradford. On display are a range of personal collection items - including a scooter - celebrating youth culture.

The exhibition is a partnership between Bradford Museums & Galleries and Being Bradford, “a group of working-class mavericks that have organised themselves into a sort of artistic trade union” whose aim is to see their story told by themselves as part of the city’s cultural narrative.

* Over at Bradford Industrial Museum there’s a journey back to the city’s bygone buildings, familiar facades and recognisable roads. An exhibition called Take Three Streets: Recipes for a Modern City looks at Westgate, Ivegate and Kirkgate - the three ‘ingredients’ from which Bradford has grown to be the city it is today.

It’s a glimpse of some of the changes and developments in the city centre as documented by photographs held in Bradford Museums’ Photo Archive, others shared by local photographers.

The images on display highlight shops, houses and roads from Bradford’s humble beginnings as a small market town through its rapid growth in the 19th century, and its mid-20th century radical re-design, to today’s changes as the city adjusts to 21st century needs.

The exhibition, on until November, will be updated with more photographs. Anyone wishing to submit photographs of Bradford city centre to be considered for display is asked to email BradfordMuseumsPhotoArchive@bradford.gov.uk

Also at the Industrial Museum, a project called Industrialised Heart is showcasing new works exploring existing displays at the venue.

In the 1800s and 1900s industries in the North of England needed labour from outside the UK, and Bradford became home to one of the largest Pakistani populations in England. Razwan Ul-Haq uses Nastaliq Calligraphy inspired by the national poet of Pakistan, Allama Iqbal, and selected verses from Iqbal’s Urdu poetry, to explore the relationship between the coming of the machine era and the response of an Eastern poet and philosopher.

Also in the exhibition, which runs until September, are works from Razwan’s series Phobiastan, exploring the North, supported by Arts Council England.

* Ever wondered who lived in Bradford’s most haunted house long before it was open to the public? Home Sweet Home: Old Photographs of Bolling Hall looks at the families who lived in the historic property.

The hall was home to its wealthy owners for centuries until the 19th century, then Sir Francis Wood sold it to the Bowling Iron Company in 1816 and one of the company partners, John Paley, received the property and subsequently rented it to other families.

The first of a long line of tenants was a Reverend Heineken, believed to have lived there from 1822 to 1827. According to Census records, the Walker family lived there in 1851, then the Tankards until1887. Both were wealthy families with domestic servants.

After the Tankards moved out the hall was split into separate dwellings, with various families renting wings or rooms. In 1911 three families are listed as living at Bolling Hall - the Watts family, the Warburtons and Parringtons. Their occupations included a printer, labourer, warehousemen and tailor.

The exhibition, on until March 2022, includes glass lantern slides from Bradford Museums collection showing what rooms at Bolling Hall looked like during this period.

The slides have been digitised, printed and put in corresponding rooms around the property to tell this chapter of Bolling Hall’s history.
