About Brent London Borough Council
Brent has a diverse artistic community, a wide range of cultural activities and award-winning parks. Each community in Brent has its own cultural celebrations including one of Europe's biggest Irish festivals and the Hindu Diwali festival, which attracts around 40,000 people each year. The Borough is home to 'Mahogany', the innovative designer for carnival and theatrical costumes and the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn. Brent, located in the northwest of Greater London, is one of London's most diverse boroughs. With a population of over 275,000, it is one of the most culturally and racially diverse of all local authorities in England and Wales. Many northern parts of the Borough are affluent, but poverty and social exclusion, particularly in the south of the borough, is still a significant issue. As a business location Brent has much to offer, with good road and rail links into central London. It contains two of London's largest industrial estates in Park Royal and Wembley.
