Brent wins second prize at the New Year’s Day Parade
Around half a million spectators watched the procession
The streets of London lit up in a rainbow of colours as performers celebrate the New Year by marching in a parade.
Brent students and residents joined hundreds of others in the annual procession through Piccadilly, now in its 25th year.
Dressed in tracksuits, pupils from Alperton Community School, Claremont, Kingsbury, and Queen’s Park Community School proudly carry a model of the iconic Wembley arch as a reminder of the boroughs sporting prestige.
Brent won second prize winning �6,000 for the Mayor’s charities.
