Things to read
Published quarterly and delivered to over 130,000 homes in Brent, Your Brent is our newly re-branded popular publication of news and what's on in Brent.
Following results from the readers survey in the spring issue of The Brent Magazine, we decided to rename the magazine to better reflect what residents want.

New Look, Fresh Start
Welcome to the new look Brent magazine, Your Brent. Thank you to everyone who took the time out to fill in the reader survey (page 46). Following your feedback, we are making some changes and additions to give you – our readers – more of what you want. For example, you said you would like the mag to include more inspiring and positive community stories so – if you have a story to tell – please contact the editor at email@example.com. We’ve also added in a regular new service information page which should help you find the contact details for a wide range of public services in Brent more quickly and easily. You can find these details on page 37.
Violent crime is a national epidemic which is affecting too many of us, whether directly or indirectly. Cllr Tom Miller, Cabinet Member for Community Safety, has written a guest column which details some of the ways we are trying to prevent more people from being victims of knife crime. The Secretary of State for Justice also visited Brent in May to learn more about the excellent work our teams are doing, alongside partners, to combat serious youth violence.
The start of June marks the start of summer so we’ve selected some of the best local activities for you to enjoy with your families. From dinosaurs to dancing, plays to parks there is something for everyone. We even have a competition to win a trip to Dinosaur World Live at the new Troubadour Theatre, in Wembley (page 36).
Finally, we are just six months away from becoming the London Borough of Culture 2020. This is an exciting time for Brent and we can’t wait to shine a spotlight on all the amazing culture we have in the borough. Show your support for The London Borough of Cultures by displaying the free poster in your window and tweeting us a picture for your chance to win culture related prizes.
Cllr Muhammed Butt,
Leader of Brent Council
