Semi-protected edit request on 6 July 2015 Update To Bradford Manufacturers[edit]

Bradford's textile industry has been in decline for many years and the city has suffered from de-industrialisation. Some areas of Bradford are among the worst levels of social deprivation in the UK,[59] with widespread pockets of exclusion, and rates of unemployment in some wards exceeding 25%.,[38] though other areas of Bradford are among the least deprived in the UK.[60] The economy is worth around 8.3 billion, making Bradford's economy a major powerhouse in the region and is forecast to grow to more than 9 billion by 2016,[61] contributing around 8.4% of the region's output, and making the district the third largest (after Leeds and Sheffield) in Yorkshire & Humber. The economy has diversified and the city is home to several major companies, notably in finance (Yorkshire Building Society, Provident Financial, Santander UK), textiles ( British Wool Marketing Board, Bulmer and Lumb Group), chemicals (BASF, Nufarm UK), electronics (Pace Micro, Filtronic), engineering (NG Bailey, Powell Switchgear), and manufacturing, (Acorn MobilityDenso Marston, Bailey Offsite, Hallmark Cards UK and Seabrook Potato Crisps). Supermarket chain Morrisons has its head office in Bradford as does water utility company Yorkshire Water.[62] Acorn Publications (talk) 15:23, 6 July 2015 (UTC) Insert Acorn Mobility before Denso Marston.

Suggested Edits and Inclusions[edit]

The music section should include music festivals. Saltaire Festival, which this year had a main stage in Robert's Park, had thousands in attendance to watch live bands. Bingley Music Live also brings large touring bands to the region.

The film section needs L.A. Without a Map starring Vincent Gallo, Johnny Depp and David Tennant. Bradford features very prominently in this film.

The removal of Chantel McGregor from the music section. She is not notable. There are many far more notable signed and unsigned bands/musicians from Bradford who are not listed. Chantel being listed is nothing more than self promotion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.226.23.42 (talk) 17:13, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Rather than your 'handwavium' non-specific "many far more notable", you might want to cite a few examples to back up your request for Chantel McGregor's removal. Having won over four consecutive years at the British Blues Awards, I'll be interested to see the more-notable examples I'm sure you're keen to provide.
I'd also note that asserting the inclusion is "self promotion" would require some evidence she, or someone involved/closely related to her, was responsible for her inclusion. --Brian McNeil /talk 02:05, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Chantel McGregor has won numerous UK blues awards including best guitarist and best young artist, she's also released two albums, toured extensively in the UK and Europe. Bradford4life (talk) 21:07, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

  • Your suggestions for music additions are really not relevant to this article. The Saltaire Festival probably should be mentioned in the Saltaire article, and the Bingley Music Live in the Bingley article. Otherwise they should be in the City of Bradford article.
