Restoration & Redevelopment
Glass Canvas was commissioned by Aedas to visualise ambitious regeneration project plans to transform Bradford City’s landmark Odeon cinema, derelict since 2000, into a world-class music, entertainment and events venue.
In partnership with the NEC Group and Bradford Council, Bradford Live will transform the derelict former cinema into a commercially viable and sustainable 4,000 capacity venue, which is due to open in autumn 2020.
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport have provided a grant of £4m from the Northern Cultural Regeneration Fund to support this ground-breaking project.
Bradford Live's aims are to facilitate live music, entertainment, production, exhibition, cultural and artistic events for the public benefit and provide for social and community participation.
100% of its surplus will be reinvested to provide additional social value.
