Last weekend was perfect weather for our local heritage tour, and we were excited to learn more about life of the mosque and to see behind-the-scenes at the bus garage.

This week’s tour, Sunday 19 August, will include special performances from young actors who will bring to life some of the stories of Elders who migrated to Cricklewood and have shared their stories with us during the Generations of Learning project. They have been hard at work rehearsing and we are surely in for a treat.

NOTE: We will be taking photos and filming the young performers. We will be checking whether people are happy to be included and respecting those who are camera shy, but do be aware filming will be taking place. Next week’s tour, on Saturday 25, will be film free!

 
Led by the talented and engaging Saira Niazi of Living London, the tours weave the stories of people who migrated to Cricklewood in the 1960s with significant places around the neighbourhood.

Tours start at 11am at Willesden Green tube station and end in Gladstone Park at 2pm. This tour is not suitable for small children, due to the distance (about 2.5 miles). Please wear comfortable shoes, bring sunscreen and carry an umbrella, and bring water & a picnic lunch if you’d like to stick around after the tour.
