Steve's parents - Eric and Vicky Bradshaw - lived in Nottingham. Eric was a sergeant with the Army's secret SRDE (Signals & Research Development Establishment) for six years. He founded the Nottingham News Agency, made well over a thousand TV and radio broadcasts, and wrote for most of the national papers. He was also a BBC TV and radio football correspondent. Vicky now lives in Rutland.

Steve was educated at Nottingham High School. He left early from the 6th form having won an Exhibition scholarship to Queens College Cambridge. He was Features Editor of Varsity and edited Granta with Colin MacCabe and the university poetry magazine Solstice with Brian Morse (work from J.H. Prynne, Graham Swift, Brian Patten et al). He was awarded a Roosevelt Scholarship to tour the US but did not take it up.

In 1973 Steve married Jenny Richards, Deputy Director of Television for the Environment. They have two sons, a daughter, and granddaughter Asta. Film writer Nick is online editor of the BFI's Sight and Sound, Doctors of Love musician Rusty - live keyboard player for Florence & the Machine and previously Razorlight - writes and teaches music, and Dr Melissa Bradshaw is a freelance writer.

Steve and Jenny's out-of-control Norfolk garden has been profiled in a cover story in Gardens Illustrated. They also cultivate a small jungle aka roof garden in Fitzrovia, London.
