A baroness and a barrister are on the bill at Brent’s International Women’s Day celebrations in Wembley Park.

Brent council and Quintain are hosting a free event in the Civic Centre on March 10 from 10am until 2.30pm.

This year's theme is Each for Equal, encouraging people to think about how individually, we're all responsible for challenging stereotypes, fighting bias, and broadening perceptions.

Attendees are encouraged to bring along unwanted professional clothes, like dresses, blouses, and suits, for donation to the Dress For Success charity and to Suited & Booted, a similar initiative for men.

Cllr Margaret McLennan, deputy leader, said: "This year's theme, Each For Equal, is all about lifting women up. And that's exactly what we'll do at this event. I can't wait to hear from these wonderful speakers, Baroness Young and Nabila Mallick, and to celebrate the contribution of local women to our communities."
