What is London Borough of Culture?
The Mayor’s London Borough of Culture award brings Londoners together. A year-long celebration of culture in one of London’s boroughs, we bid for it in 2018, beating 22 others. The prize is money, time and support to put on a year of amazing art, performances and events in Brent, throughout 2020.Find out about the award
Because of the people who live here, who’ve grown here, who’ve come here from all across the world. Because of the amazing culture that those people make and do – the music, the poetry, the dancing, the food, the sounds and the sound clashes. Because people in the rest of London, and the country, don’t know it, yet. Don’t feel it, yet. But they will.Find out about the award
