What’s happened this week 27th May 2018

On Thursday 24th May it was all about bees at Brondesbury Park station, where a lovely garden is maintained by volunteers. They even had freebies.

Another new restaurant is opening, where Efes cafe used to be, next to the Black Lion. Will it last longer than the previous one?

The sign has gone up for Wingmans. They are opening next week, with no set date but will definitely be opened by next week-end.

And a new co working office space is about to open on the high road.

Did you enjoy the thunderstorm on Saturday night? A grand final to a noisy day.

Maryam Eslamdoust, Camden Kilburn Councillor was selected as Deputy Mayor for Camden Council.

Ever wanted to know how to pronounce “Brondesbury”?

Another weekend, another football fan invasion. It’s great to see the pubs are busy but their security staff should ensure patrons don’t impact on others, such as blocking the entrance to Kilburn Grange Park

Eating at Ariana II can be…. life changing?

Planning comments on the Brent Council planning website have strangely disappeared with only the addresses of those who have commented remaining. A move towards more transparency from Brent Council? We don’t think so… Please do object to the redevelopment of The Good Ship site. The deadline is 30th May. The Kilburn Neighbourhood Plann Forum have objected, and you can see their objection here.

Good news! Camden Council have agreed to clean up under the bridges by Kilburn Station to remove bird mess  and graffiti on their side of the Kilburn High road. Will Brent council do the same for the other side?

Are the chips at North London Tavern sooooooo good?

Some lovely pictures of St Augustine Church.

Kingsgate Project Space opened their new exhibition ( until 23rd June) and their new billboard was revealed this week.

Could Kilburn again host a music festival like this one? It was in October 2010.

Another reminder of Kilburn’s Music history. And comparative pictures of the Kilburn High Road (past and present)

To finish our history part, Dick Weindling has written a post about a Man with 4 lives. Kilburn had some interesting characters…
