The purpose of Artspace is to offer the people of Bradford and beyond high-quality performance and visual Arts’ events, reflecting the significance of the Arts within the Christian church.

It will do this by:

  • Connecting the Cathedral with the wider community through Arts’ events that have local resonances

  • Being open to a wide range of people and communities, helping them to explore issues of spirituality

  • Offering local artists performance and exhibition space within which to celebrate their creativity

  • Working in partnership with organisations that share its desire to increase cooperation and understanding in a multi-faith environment

  • Showcasing a range of Arts’ events that beautify the cathedral building by being in sympathy and harmony with it, and increasing the number of visitors

If you would like to enquire about the possibility of exhibiting or performing in the Cathedral, please email us

Community Weaving.

Tear and Repair is a collaboration between artist Nicola Moody and Luton-based charity Azalea, who ‘empower men and women to choose to walk free from being caught up in sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation’. She ran a series of workshops with the women who went to the charity for support.

You can see the exhibition in Bradford Cathedral until Monday 7th February. The exhibition is open during our usual opening hours of Monday - Saturday 10am - 4pm (except Wednesday 12noon - 4pm)
