The World Comes to Kilburn

The World Comes to Kilburn

Shared City CIC are working with local community groups on The World Comes To Kilburn, a local heritage project focusing on the history of Kilburn High Road, through the eyes of immigrants who have made it the multicultural and vibrant place it is today. There will be tours, trails and workshops – and the project will provide opportunities for participants to learn new skills, share stories about local history, and build a community chest of knowledge.

Contact us by email now if you are a community group or school interested in getting involved or click here if you are an individual living in Kilburn and would like to participate & learn new skills.
