People will be able to see a DeLorean which has been converted into replica of the car which started in the 1980s classic, Back to the Future.

The Bradford Police Museum will stage special photographic exhibition featuring police and support vehicles from the past 100 years.

Children will be entertained by giant Jenga, Connect 4, face painters and a climbing wall.
