THE organiser of the Bradford Classic car show says the BID would play a key role in bringing the city centre to life.
Mike Cowlam, who attracted huge crowds to see almost 140 classic vehicles displayed by their owners in City Park and Centenary Square two weeks ago, said staging events was an important way to bring in new visitors and shoppers.
“Bradford was really buzzing on the day of the Classic and there was a complete mix of people from all backgrounds and communities here,” said Mr Cowlam, pictured (above, left) with BID chair Ian Ward, in a classic, Bradford-built, open-top Jowett.
“Events like this really help to make the city vibrant and exciting and they bring in people to visit and shop who might not otherwise think of coming here.
“I know staging more events and street entertainment is a major part of the BID’s business plan and if they can make that happen, the city will be all the better for it.”
