#NewCitySoul Comes To Bradford

When I lived in London, I spent a lot of my time shopping in Westfield Stratford.

Stratford was revitalised by the 2012 Olympics and then the vitality was kept alive by the new shopping centre, making Stratford a place people wanted to keep visiting. Westfield Stratford was a welcome addition to East London, and brought money and jobs to the area when it really needed them. Stratford is now a completely different place to what it was ten years ago, as an ex resident of Newham, I have seen this with my own eyes.

Now I live in Leeds, Leeds is full of fantastic shopping centres, both old and new, restaurants are springing up everywhere and many people think that Leeds is a superb place to shop and play. (It is)

Just 14 miles from the centre of Leeds, and very close to where I live is Bradford. Bradford has an undeserved reputation of being a sad place, a bit like Stratford had, once upon a time. Whenever I have been to Bradford I have found it to be full of life, culture and host to a range of different independent eateries and stores. But Bradford was tired, full of unfulfilled promises and dreams, while the people that live there are fiercely protective of their home, Bradford was not seeing the investment in development that other areas were.


On November the 5th, The Broadway,  Bradford will be opening and I for one couldn't be happier.

Currently, The Broadway Bradford @TheBroadwayBrad are running a competition to win the chance to win a £100 Gift Card you can spend in The Broadway.

#NewCitySoul is the perfect hashtag for the opening of The Broadway as this new shopping centre will definitely bring about new life to this beautiful place. Soul? I think Bradford already had soul, but what you need to do for your chance to win a £100 gift card is create a picture using the hashtag #NewCitySoul. Previous winners have spelt out New City Soul in Henna, Lego and lipstick, but there are STILL more chances to win.

Here is my entry,

What would yours be? You can still join in, using the hashtag. The Broadway Bradford is opening on November 5th with Alexandra Burke and I am DEFINITELY going to be there.

How about you?

Let me know.
