Curzon Crescent International Day

Curzon Crescent International Day


The sun was blazing on a Harlesden community as they celebrated an International Day at one of the borough’s s oldest nurseries.

The Curzon Crescent Children’s Centre, (CCCC) in Curzon Crescent, held its annual festival with Brent Central’s MP Dawn Butler as its guest of honour.

A buffet of international food bought in by local residents gave a taste of the diversity of the area and the community spirit that exists there.

A steel band played followed by music and dancing. There were many activities for families including jewellery making, arts and crafts, face painting, a beauty salon, henna and a bouncy castle for little ones.

Ms Butler said: ‘Brent is the most diverse constituency in the country and this is reflected here. It is great to see so many children enjoying themselves and learning together - the world would be a better place if we shared a slice of what is happening here today.’

CCCC runs in partnership with Fawood Children’s Centre, in Fawood Avenue and Challenge House Children’s Centre in Harlesden High Street.
