After being named London’s new Cultural District, the stories, art and emotions that merge in Brent will serve as inspiration for a series of creative events. Throughout the year, Brent 2020 promises to celebrate a culture that now remembers the people, sites, and innovations that have helped put this neighborhood on the map. This new initiative of the mayor of London was born in 2019; in the first edition, the London borough of Waltham Forest was elected.
A key aspect in 2020 is that Brent is not just a Neighborhood of Culture, but a Neighborhood of Cultures. As the home of Wembley football stadium and home to top sports stars such as Cyrille Regis and Rachel Yankey, this neighbourhood in north west London has an important sporting character. He is also known in the world of music as, over the years, he has received, among many other artists, reggae master Bob Marley; The Who drummer Keith Moon; the great George Michael; and reggae singer Janet Kay.
