Welcome to the home of Metroland Cultures. We are the charity that delivered Brent 2020, London Borough of Cultures. We are here to stay. We will continue to work with art, work with art, creativity and the multiple cultures of the London Borough of Brent.
Building on Brent's year as London Borough of Culture, we are recruiting a new team and board members to make incredible platforms for Brent's cultural life.
