The iconic Gaumont State will throw open its doors and host a community event for the first time in more than a decade.

Guamont State landlords Ruach Ministries have joined forces with Oxfam to host a charity fashion show this Friday (8) at the popular art deco former theatre as part of Oxjam – a month long music festival to raise money to fight poverty.

Oxjam organiser Simon Pipola said: “We are really excited about the fashion show. It will be exciting to bring some glamour to Kilburn and showcase some great designers and models.

“Ruach Ministries are really keen to engage with the community and they are the perfect partners for this event.”

The Gaumont State reopened earlier this year after a community campaign to save the grade II listed building from developers.

The fashion show will be the first time the general public has been allowed into the former theatre in 15 years.
