Getting ready for next festival
As headaches recede and dancing feet return to normal organisers of a top festival are calling on the public's help to make sure next year's event is better than ever. Instead of basking in the success of July's Kilburn Festival the Kilburn Town Centre Management team are looking to improve on this year as well as put out another festival in December. The team are also considering putting on a Winter Glow Festival in early December but are first preparing to review how this summer's event went. Anyone with ideas or feedback on the Kilburn Festival should contact the Town Centre Management team on 020 7974 6388.
