Bradford’s North Parade welcomes new live music venue

Bradford’s North Parade is welcoming a new live music venue to the many popular bars and cafes that have proved such a hotspot in recent years thanks to the City Growth Zone fund.

Wireless Bar is a new venture set up by long standing friends Lee Fergus and Richard Emsley which will promote the great local talent that exists in the area.

As well as enjoying the sounds of bands and solo artists, customers can enjoy an excellent choice of real ales and craft beers from local breweries.

The bar, which has benefited from Bradford Council’s City Growth Zone funding, will be opening shortly, creating 4 new jobs.

Creating jobs is an essential criteria to be granted either a capital grant or business rates relief under the City Centre Growth Zone fund.

Sunbridge Wells tunnels was the latest project to benefit from this incentive, which has proved extremely popular, with customers flocking from right across the region to visit this highly unusual and unique destination.

The tunnels, offering shops and bars in this underground complex, have proved a great boost to the city.

Many other cafes and bars have made great additions to Bradford’s leisure economy. In various parts of the city, over 30 different leisure and hospitality venues in the city centre have received funding.

They include Cafe Jinnah in the Gatehaus in Leeds Road; the Guzelian cafe in Church Bank; the award-winning Brew Haus in Windsor Baths, Morley Street, and Rakkaposhi in Ebenezer Street.

Coun Alex Ross-Shaw, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, Planning and Transport, said: “It’s really good to see the night-life booming in Bradford, and also to see cafes popping up and catering for a wide variety of tastes all over the city centre.”

In all over 200 businesses have received funding from the Scheme since its launch in 2012.
