Last August Tour

Don’t miss your chance to join us: This Saturday, 25 August, is the last of our free August walking tours.

Led by the talented 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.

There will be a chance to discuss issues of migration, the changes around Cricklewood, and to share your own stories.

We’re not quite sure what the weather will be doing, but we’ll be going ahead!

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.

Booking is not essential but places are limited to 20 people. To reserve a place, please use the form below:

Young & Old stories

Tomorrow’s heritage 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 avoiding 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!
