Brent: London Borough of Culture 2020
Brent Council won the bid to be London Borough of Culture for 2020. The Mayor's London Borough of Culture award is a new initiative by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to celebrate the wealth of creativity across every corner of London.
The London Borough of Culture title will put Brent on London's centre stage in 2020. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate life in Brent, showcase what Brent is about to other Londoners and create a cultural programme which will leave a lasting legacy. See the website for more info at: https://www.brentculture2020.co.uk/
We want people who don't know Brent to discover it in 2020, and those who do to enjoy celebrating everything that's special, intriguing and ground-breaking about their incredible corner of London.
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent's diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
