This coming Saturday, 2 October 2021 Wealdstone Traders Association will be hosting the Wealdstone Conversations Cultural Music Day.

The Wealdstone Conversations Project, supported by Harrow Council, is currently engaging the views and opinions of Wealdstone’s diverse communities about both opportunities and issues of concern in the town and its public spaces.

It will build upon the work currently being invested by Harrow Council through projects such as the transformation of Wealdstone Square, vibrant new murals along the High Street, the Harrow Strategic Development Partnership regeneration, a new pedestrian bridge from the former Kodak site, and the current Wealdstone Town Centre Improvement Scheme.  

These discussions will help inform a funding application to the Greater London Authority High Streets For All Challenge Fund.

The Wealdstone Conversations Cultural Music Day will bring Wealdstone Square to life, showing the potential for future community events and activities. The event’son-stage programme will include music from Afro-funk and Highlife band Odinani, vintage sounds of the 1940s from the London Belles and songstress Pandora’s Diary, as well as a variety of performances showcasing the talent present among Wealdstone’s local groups.

You won’t want to miss the staff of businesses in the high street who will be showing off their cultural dance moves. A creative workshop supplied by Harrow Arts Centre will bring out the artist in everyone, whilst some of Wealdstone’s speciality restaurants will be providing tasters of food from around the world. The event is free and open to all.
