Following the Service, family activities will also be held in Norfolk Gardens, between City Hall and Hall Ings. There will be exhibitors from across Bradford to provide information on the heritage of the district and showcase the organisations that work to preserve the memory of those who have served in our armed forces.

There will be a brass band, face painters and a climbing wall for all the family to enjoy.
