Cllr Eleanor Southwood, Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy & Citizen Experience at Brent Council said:
“Our high streets and independent businesses reflect the borough’s rich cultural heritage.
“These small businesses were hit hard by the pandemic, and have continued to face an uphill battle with consumer behaviour changes, skyrocketing energy prices and the cost-of-living crisis.
“Culture Splash will bring our communities together this summer to reconnect with their high streets and neighbours in a celebration of culture.
“From Kilburn and its thriving comedy scene to Harlesden, the UK’s capital of reggae, our events will champion the unique identity of each of our town centres.
Make sure you show your high street some love by joining in the summer fun and supporting our much-cherished traders.
Culture Splash complements the council’s ongoing Shop Local campaign and high street revitalisation programme.
