Bradford's Diversity Festival returns

In a celebration of the city's diversity, the University of Bradford is welcoming back its popular Diversity Festival.

The theme of this year’s festival which runs 12-16 March is ‘Challenging Perceptions’. The programme looks at new, interesting and thought provoking ideas and is created in partnership with staff, students and external partners.

Highlights of this year’s festival include a comedy night with Francesca Martinez and Britain’s Got Talent star Jack Carrol, a panel discussion on ‘taking back the power’ and an opportunity to hear survivors stories from the charity Karma Nirvana.

Also featuring is Bisi Alimi, the anti-gay campaigner who became the first Nigerian to come out on national TV.

Gill Cockburn, Co-chair of n-able, the staff network for promoting disability equality said: “This year’s programme looks the best yet with inspiring talks, lively debates and lots of laughter. These events are for everyone and will hopefully raise awareness and tackle some of the misperceptions people may have.

“It is set to be a fantastic week and I hope as many people book on to the events as possible.”

Information on dates, times and how to book onto these events can be found here.

The Diversity Festival last ran in 2016 and partners include Bradford College who are hosting a series of cinema nights throughout the festival.
