We would like to thank Bradford Libraries, children’s entertainers Jingjangjoojong, Keighley and District Local History Society, Local poets Jem Stuart and Jim Saville, Video Mic Night -TV and all the amazing bands that took part in the live mic night. We hope to bring you the next St George’s Day in person’.
