The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation have been awarded a grant from Bradford City Council to undertake some important historical interpretation work at Park Avenue Bradford, a sporting ground that was a previous host to Yorkshire CCC and First-Class cricket.
As a result, we are currently seeking a contractor with relevant experience to help with the project. The key deliverables of the project are below:

• Create a catalogue of archival and visual sources on the history of Park Avenue Bradford’s sporting past (cricket and football primarily).
• Use those sources to create a research piece on that history, written in the format of museum interpretative panels (a timeline complemented with focus points of participant stories).
• Identify a network of individuals with experiences at Park Avenue Bradford (player, staff/coach, spectator, local).
• Undertake short interviews with them to include their stories in the content prepared for interpretative display.

The consultant will aim to deliver this project across 20 days over a 6-month period and the individual will be paid £152 per day.

If this position is of interest and you would like to work on this project, please contact [email protected] before 29th September 2023.
