This weekend will see the first ever Willesden Mini Mela at the Library at Willesden Green. The day will be filled with activities throughout. The event is in partnership with Brent Council, Lottery, Arts Council England, Willesden Temple and the British Museum who have loaned a 800 year idol of Ganesha at the Exhibition space.
Brent Museum and Archives is hosting an ancient statue of the Lord Ganesha. The idol is on loan from the British Museum. The beautiful sculpture is over 800 years old and originates from India.
Come and see the statue and our wider exhibition celebrating many aspects of Indian culture at Willesden Library. The exhibition has been created in partnership with Shree Swaminarayan Temple Willesden, Mahogany Arts and the artists Kirsty Harris. There will also be a celebration event on 17th May.
On Tuesday, I was delighted to attend the Diamond Jubilee celebration at the Willesden Swaminarayan Temple.
It was great to see members of the Gujarati community which I am a part of celebrate along side local residents and Brent’s elected representatives, including Councillors and our local Brent and Harrow London Assembly Member Navin Shah.
