Explore the history, diversity, culture, stories, art and emotions that hold life in Brent together with a whole year of events and activities as part of the Mayor’s London Borough of Culture 2020.

The Mayor’s London Borough of Culture award is a major new initiative launched by Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, in June 2017 and inspired by the UK City and European Capital of Culture programmes.

The Mayor’s London Borough of Culture award brings Londoners together. It puts culture at the heart of local communities, where it belongs, illuminating the character and diversity of London’s boroughs and showing culture is for everyone. Now more than ever, the Mayor wants Londoners to get to know each other and feel part of this great city. Thanks to this new award, all Londoners will now have the chance to be part of something extraordinary.
