Event held in Grange Park was the biggest and best
Thousands partied in the park at yesterday’s Kilburn Festival.
Around 10,000 people flocked to Grange Park off Kilburn High Road, where they basked in the sun while enjoying a plethora of entertainment and activities.
The festival was attended by two mayors, Cllr Bobby Thomas from Brent and Cllr Jonathan Simpson, who both walked around the event and spoke to holders on some of the 65 stalls at the festival.
The Brent & Kilburn Times team ran a book stall which raised £61 for the charity which organises the event.
