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.

Brent 2020 will present high profile cultural events throughout the year across Brent exploring the spirit and creativity of Brent, with hundreds of local residents taking a leading role in shaping the programme.

If you are a community-based not for profit organisation and have an event taking place in the borough, you are welcome to credit your project as part of the Brent 2020 programme.
