MUSIC will be celebrated at different locations across Bradford during the whole of next month.

Organisers of Bradford Music Month said they hope to "inspire, entertain and engage" communities with a variety of concerts, workshops and other events taking place in the district throughout November.

One of the highlights promises to be the Bassline and Bhangra Sober Rave, which will be held at The Mill, on Thornton Road, on November 18.

The family-friendly attraction will feature sets from Deejay AJ, Jae Depz, Spice Nights and more.

Elsewhere, the Displace Yourself Theatre, at the Oastler Shopping Centre, will be transformed into Bradford Music Month's Garden of Eden on November 10 and 11.

During the day, it will host workshops exploring how music can play a significant role in our well-being.

By night, the Garden of Eden will become an intimate venue with artists including soul singer Melissa Steel and alt-folk outfit Sunflower Thieves performing special sets.

Other events being held across the district during the month will include public opera performances, world music showcases, a soul and R&B spectacle, and opportunities for Bradford musicians to receive funding and support to hold their own concerts.

Bradford Music Month - which is backed by Bradford Council, Bradford Producing Hub and Arts Council England - is being led by musician Sinead Campbell, QM Records founder Ned Archibong and events manager Gail Simpkins.

Sinead, project manager, said: "We are extremely excited about Music Month this year with its extensive programme.

"We hope to inspire, entertain and engage a range of communities across the district with music.

"We are happy that so many people within the Bradford music sector have submitted brilliant events - there really is so much to explore musically throughout November.

"I am particularly excited about the Garden Of Eden - music and well-being go hand in hand and this one-off programme offers something fresh, wholesome and nourishing for the soul."

The first Bradford Music Month took place in 2022 - and with 2025 UK City of Culture nearing, the team hopes the initiative will become a regular date in the area’s cultural calendar.

Sinead added: "It is great to work on a project with a goal to grow while remaining authentic, keeping values of quality and inclusivity intact."
