Grown up in Brent
Curated by the Museum of Youth Culture the free exhibition at Kilburn Library, in Salusbury Road, brings together everyday stories of being young in the borough.
Browse personal photographs, memories, objects and ephemera (short lived work) collected during the 2020 national lockdown.
Open Saturday and Sunday.
Watch The Football
It the first time in 55 years that England has made it to an international final so Sunday evening is going to be tense.
If you don't happen to have a ticket, you can watch the Euro 2020 at home for free or head to a pub and get giddy with the excitement and jangling nerves with others as the team go head to head with Italy.
