Welsh Harp Festival – 16th September 2017

16 September 2017 Aboyne Road, Neasden, NW10 0HA

On the back of a very successful Summer Festival in August 2016, BTEG has been supporting and working with a group of young people living in the Welsh Harp Ward to plan and host the second Welsh Harp Festival scheduled for 16th September 2017 at the Neasden Recreation Ground – over-looking the reservoir.

This year the group have decided to focus on a theme relevant and pertinent to the local community. They have decided to focus on Gang Culture and Bullying’. 

In addition to developing the skills and experience of the team of young people the festival aims to promote the beauty of the Welsh Harp and promote community cohesion.

The event is aimed at families and all members of the community.

It will hopefully have a range of activities including:

  • Football tournament – for both boys and girls and different age groups

  • Stage with a range of performances around the core theme of Gang culture and bullying (music, dance, poetry, music, theatre, spoken word etc.).

  • Races – including egg and spoon, three legged, bean bad throwing etc. for children    and    parents, giant jenga

  • Open Mic – chance for people to show-off their skills/singing

  • Food

  • Stalls including information about the Welsh Harp and boating,

  • Face painting, henna art,

  • Zumba

  •  Bouncy Castle

  •  Fire Brigade – access to engine for kids

  • Police interaction

The young people have chosen 1-Voice, a local charity to benefit from any proceeds through food sales, raffle, henna art etc. 1Voice Community Forum is a voluntary Charity run by parent carers for parent carers of disabled children who live in Brent.
