Festival to celebrate "the best of Cricklewood"
A festival will celebrate “the best of Cricklewood” this month.
Volunteers behind the Cricklewood Improvement Programme (CIP) will host the Silk Road Festival on Saturday, September 15.
There will be a variety of activities including live music, dance performances, face painting and a market selling food as well as arts and crafts.
CIP was set up in 2010 and has been working with Barnet, Brent and Camden Councils as well as local businesses, residents and police to co-ordinate their efforts to improve Cricklewood.
Danny Maher, chair of CIP, said: "The festival is an opportunity for local residents to get together to celebrate the best of Cricklewood.
"People can enjoy themselves and recognise what’s good about the place."
In February this year, Cricklewood was awarded £1.6 million pounds of the Mayor’s outer London fund to deliver projects including one to support businesses in the area, marketing and promotion and a youth engagement scheme.
