Cricklewood Library, which had stood on the corner of Olive Road, opposite Gladstone Park for 85 years, was closed down in 2011. Since then, the community has been fighting to reopen it. We’ve wrangled with developers, the Council, red tape and naysayers, cajoled funders, begged, stolen (kidding) and borrowed, and finally we’ve managed it. The library will reopen in early summer 2020, after nine years closed.
We will be taking part in Make Music Day on Sunday 21 June 2020, and throwing open the doors to the library and encouraging as many people from the local community as possible, to come along to listen to, and participate in, music making of all kinds. The event will be free to the public.
If you are local and make music of any kind, please do get in touch – we’d love to fit as many different kinds of music making into the day as possible. Currently we have two choirs and a classical pianist on the programme – could you join us?
We’d also love it if we could find a few local ukulele players to join in a uke jam. A session we ran at the Cricklewood Festival a couple of years ago was one of the highlights of the day and we’d love that to happen again. So, if you’re a uke player within spitting distance of NW2 on 21 June, get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
