Join us to show that diversity is our strength, and that the North stands together.

BIG SPARKLING FESTIVE SOCIAL

Bradford 2025 HQ & The Underground - Live Music Venue, Wednesday 14th December 6pm - Late

Cultural Voice Forum and Bradford Producing Hub (BPH) are teaming up to host the final big sparkling creative social event of the year. The Big Festive Social is open to creative organisations and freelancers alike, giving creatives the opportunity to celebrate the year's successes as well Bradford’s designation as City of Culture 2025. 


After last year’s “Big Creative Social - That Never Was”, we wanted this event to be fun, lighthearted and joyful! Expect Music, Dancing and The Unexpected!

The evening events take place over two venues and will include a short journey. 


Join us for a Festive Reception at Kala Sangam from 6.00pm - 7.30pm with music and mince pies. 

There will be a chance to put names to faces, explore creative potential, collaborations and opportunities in Bradford as well as hearing from our inspiring “special guest” speaker. That’s all we can say for now, we can’t give too much away. The capacity at this event is limited to 130, reserve your place today.


As we mentioned earlier, expect the unexpected. With that in mind at 7.30pm another “special guest” (this may be a theme) will arrive and guide us to our next location to continue the evening's festivities.


From 8.00pm - Late, there will be dancing, performance and a whole heap of festive spirit at The Underground - Live Music Venue. Our host for these late-night activities is Bradford Music Scene’s Charlotte Furness, who will lead us in a game of Bongo Bingo and Groovers In The Heart resident DJ Pav Iqbal will treat us to disco beats into the night! A night not to be missed! 

RSVPs are not required to attend Activities taking place at The Underground.
