Save Our Media Museum

This picture was taken on June 8th, at the beginning of a campaign by local politicians, councillors and our local newspaper to save the National Media Museum from closure.  Funding for a group of museums  including the Media Museum is to be reduced and one of the establishments in the group may therefore  have to close, possibly the Media Museum here in Bradford.  Back in early June actor John Hurt and Monty Python star Terry Jones were speaking out in support of the museum.  Since then a growing number of celebrities and politicians have added their names to the campaign, the latest being American film director Martin Scorsese.

  1. Oh No!!

    I was born and spent my early childhood living on Edmund Street and remember the Princes Theatre being demolished to make way for the new building.

    Lets hope that someone high up has a serious rethink about this
