About The Event


Bradford Industrial Museum
235 Moorside Rd, Eccleshill, Bradford BD2 3HP

Bradford District Museums and Galleries have worked with local Scout groups to open a new exhibition at Bradford Industrial Museum.

In Bradford, over 8,000 young people take part in scouting weekly, supported by 3,000 adult volunteers. The UK Scouts Association is the largest in Europe and has over 360,000 members. It is led by the current Chief Scout, the television presenter, adventurer, and author, Bear Grylls.

The exhibition features the stories and photographs of some of the Scouts in the district and information about Scout’s famous ambassadors. Included is a family campfire corner to sit and read together and a programme of activities are being run from spring until the end of summer.
