Bradford Talks


Bradford Talks is a monthly event with local speakers who share original ideas and provoke new ways of thinking through stories.

Aside from giving a voice to the vast amount of local wisdom, these events are designed to bring the community together and foster deeper connections.

Each event will feature one talk plus a Q&A / discussion session and take place on the fourth Thursday of each month.

The events are free.

We are always on the lookout for speakers so if you are interested in doing a talk, please let us know your idea here.

General Flow

Arrive from 0700pm and the first thirty minutes or so will be a chance to get a drink and have some chats.

We will start at 0730pm and finish no later than 0830pm.

There will be a donation bar at the event kindly supplied by The Hall. We suggest a minimum £5 donation which will be given directly to the Alex Moulton Charitable Trust.

After the talk, feel free to stay as long as you want, or until The Hall kicks us out.


We are excited to announce that from January 2024 we will be hosting our talks at The Hall, Holt Road, Bradford on Avon.

This Jacobean mansion is the one-time home to Dr Alex Moulton and is now cared for by the Alex Moulton Charitable Trust who have generously given us the space to meet.

There is parking for up to 8 cars at The Hall but we hope that, if you can, you will walk or cycle. It is only a 5 minute walk from The Shambles. Entry is through the ‘Eagle’ Gates on Holt Road. Directions are here.
