Diversity in Brentford celebrated

Wed 31 July 2019, 2:38 pm

A new cultural and community initiative celebrating the creative diversity of Brentford is being held this summer, to establish a platform for the arts, food and live music.

The Brentford Project, created by family-run property developer Ballymore, started its programme of events in June and will run them until the end of August.

Occasions include live music, free interactive classes and workshops and food and drink events at Brentford’s waterfront space, located at the end of Catherine Wheel Road where the river meets the canal.

This incorporates an expansive events space near an information centre and the recently-opened bakery and restaurant, Rye by the Water.

The venture is run by Ben Rand, former head chef of The Dairy, and Janine Edwards, who was previously the head pastry chef at Little Bread Pedlar. The bakers at Rye by the Water are hosting bread and pizza-making classes on certain Saturdays in July and August.

On 15 August there will be an event taking a fascinating look into Brentford’s rich heritage with the Brentford and Chiswick Local History Society. While on 31 August, at the Makers of Brentford event there will be a chance to discover the best arts and crafts in the area with creative workshops and an art exhibition.

The Brentford Project is the first step in establishing a new town centre for Brentford that reconnects the high street to the waterfront with new homes, retail, commercial, cultural and community spaces.
