Following the announcement, Bradford now has the best part of three years to prepare for its year in the limelight. No doubt, much thought will be given to the various manifestations of that most difficult term, "culture". The spotlight will inevitably shine on the great authors, musicians and artists that came from the city, or the stunning buildings that still grace it, and the wonderful diversity that is such an element of Bradford today. Hopefully the culture that emanates from the ordinary people of Bradford will not be forgotten: the brass bands and steel bands, the choirs and rap artists .... and the chapel concert parties.
