LCF Law managing partner joins Bradford Literature Festival board

LCF Law managing partner Simon Stell has been appointed to the management board of the Bradford Literature Festival (BLF).

The BLF, set to take place between 28 June and 7 July, will feature more than 500 events and celebrate the written and spoken word in all forms.

Last year, Bradford firm LCF Law provided advice to the BLF on the creation and installation of four commemorative stones across the region to celebrate the work of the Brontë sisters.

Commenting on his appointment to the festival’s management board, Stell said: “I am delighted to be invited to be part of the BLF’s advisory board and the newly formed management board as the festival continues expanding.”

“The board’s priority is to focus on supporting festival director Syima Aslam and the festival team providing structural governance and linking strategically with the advisory board. I look forward to working with Syima as well as the other board members.”

Aslam added: “Bradford Literature Festival is about meeting an urgent and vital public need for space in which the extraordinary times we live in can be explored, interrogated and better understood, as well as acknowledging and celebrating that there is still much that is beautiful and hopeful in the world.”

“This year, for the fifth time, Bradford Literature Festival is proud to deliver a programme which celebrates diversity, empathy, and artistic excellence, offers platform to marginalised voices, and will lift the spirits of audiences and visitors from our local communities and across the world.”
