On Sunday 5th June 2022 we held our Big Local and Summer of Culture Queen Platinum Jubilee Event at the Brabazon Community Centre. In partnership with Creative Spaces London (CSL) and Bantu Arts, we had over 130 residents join in on the celebrations. Bantu Arts were amazing delivering drumming masterclasses and live performances.
CSL inspired the community to create Jubilee-themed art and accessories. Our Big Local Youth Film Club participants captured the event, interviewing attendees including the London Borough of Hounslow’s newly elected leader and Heston West ward councillor Shantanu Rajawat.
Overall, the event was a big success, drawing in residents from across the local area.
A big thanks to all our incredible Heston West Big Local volunteers for organising and supporting the event and our community partners and friends. Thanks also to the London Borough of Hounslow for their amazing support in funding the event through their Summer of Culture and Thriving Communities grants.
Thank you to everyone who attended, without you, we couldn’t do it!
Happy 96th Birthday and Platinum Jubilee to our Queen!
