Riding Lights Theatre Company presents 'The Narrow Road' by Paul Birch

Venue
Bradford Cathedral
Address
Stott Hill Bradford, BD1 4EH, United Kingdom

Powerful Theatre on the journey to Easter.

Riding Lights Theatre Company are pleased to announce a revival of their acclaimed passion play The Narrow Road by Paul Birch, for the season of Lent and Holy Week 2024.

For many years, Riding Lights Theatre Company has toured its passion plays to churches, cathedrals and communities across the UK, providing a unique, revitalising experience of the drama of Christ’s passion.

...vivid and contemporary, with moments of high drama... [Church Times]

A man stands alone on a dusty road, an extraordinary journey before him; one that will re-trace the footsteps of Jesus into a world of miracles and madness, violence and liberation. As The Narrow Road is walked, this turbulent world is turned upside down; its inhabitants confronted by an unexpected and surprising vision.

Meeting the characters and re-living the events of the gospels, this draws us back along that original road, through the place of the cross and into the challenge of a life beyond. Compellingly performed, The Narrow Road asks each of us to step out in faith on that journey today.

The Lost Neighbourhoods of Bradford City Centre

Occuring
for 2 hours
Venue
Bradford Cathedral
Address
Stott Hill Bradford, BD1 4EH, United Kingdom

A chance to share your memories of living, working or having other connections with these historic areas
By the late 19th Century, what is today regarded as Bradford City Centre was made up of many neighbourhoods, built to house workers for the new factories and mills erected during the industrial revolution. Whilst some of these districts including Little Germany and Goitside have had a revival in recent times, most have become forgotten with the passage of time.

Supported by an £8,000 grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the Neighbourhood Project CIC will examine the histories of 20 of these neighbourhoods in and around the City Centre and produce a series of videos on their stories by late 2024 which will be shared online for free.

We are looking to talk to people who have lived, worked, volunteered, owned property or a business, or had some other connection with any of these neighbourhoods or nearby, or who are familiar with any of them for some other reason. We are especially interested in people who lived in or close by to these places after the Second World War as we wish to capture people’s memories of this period, what it was like to live there and any interesting facts or stories. We are very keen to see any old photographs of these neighbourhoods and the people who lived there.

We are running a series of ‘discovery sessions’ across these neighbourhoods, beginning on 21st February and running until 26th June.

The session at Bradford Cathedral will look at the Wapping neighbourhood. For a full list of sessions please click here.

These will be informal discussions and give people an opportunity to reminisce and share their stories. People’s contributions will be anonymous unless they give us permission to name them. We will provide light refreshments and repay travel expenses for attending. If you wish to find out more or book on one of these events, please contact Jonathan Crewdson by either telephone or text using 07422 715910 or send him an email to [email protected]

Join us for a magical night with Emma Johnson, clarinet/conductor, and the 13-piece The Orchestra For The Environment.

Emma Johnson MBE is a clarinettist who has made a name as a best selling soloist and recording artist. She won the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition when she was 17 and has since recorded over 30 albums and given concerts all over the world.

Johnson is a published composer too and during lockdown she wrote a clarinet concerto, Tree of Life, inspired by a need to express something in music about the climate crisis. Its first performance with a handpicked team of like-minded musicians, the Orchestra for the Environment, was a triumph and has led to many more performances throughout the UK.

Evoking birdsong and the natural world, the music is accompanied by striking images by Edward Hutchison. It ends on an optimistic note that by working together we can effect change.

Music by Holst, Vaughan Williams and Paul Reade helps to complete this musical celebration of the natural world. We also mark the 100th anniversary of Puccini with his exquisite Crisantemi inspired by flowers. The concert ends with music that comes straight from the heart, Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, the Serenade for Strings.

This event marks the pinnacle of our season of work at Bradford Cathedral exploring environmental issues.

Venue
Bradford Cathedral
Address
Stott Hill Bradford, BD1 4EH, United Kingdom

The Deposition of Christ, by Simon Rice, is a moment in the gospel accounts when Jesus was taken down from the cross to be laid in the tomb. It is a passing moment; a necessary transition in the story but captured here on canvas.

The painting, however, is surprising and jarring. It is both realistic and surreal. It is muted and dark but with splashes of colour. There are expected figures alongside anachronistic objects. It is an expression of an artist wrestling to make sense of his subject.

The painting is accompanied by the story of the artist's evolution of the piece and, so, the process becomes just as important as the final piece.

The exhibition is open during the Cathedral's regular opening times, and around services.

Bradford is a place of travellers who built a common home together. The stories of crossing into Bradford are stories of departures and of arrivals; some forced others chosen.

For some the life before Bradford is tinged with sadness of pain while others hold onto that previous life with pride and delight. Some have found the life in Bradford challenging and hard while others have thrived and discovered new life. All these stories shape our present and feed our future.

By hearing the stories of first generation arrivals from different parts of the world we hope all Bradfordians will be encouraged to share their own journeys to this place and time.

We are looking to find shared commonality in our different individual stories and identify ourselves in the larger social narratives that have shaped our collective culture.

In partnership with the University we are hosting an exhibition of Ugandan Asian migration stories, alongside stories from the Windrush Community. These two exhibitions will open up dialogue between different journeys of hope from two communities who continue to tell important, positive stories of Bradford’s own black history as well as stories of migration to our city of sanctuary.
