Harrow Town Centre will host its first Food and Dance Festival on St Patrick’s Day, with support from the Outer London Fund.
The Mayoral money will support Harrow Council in organising the festvial, which aims to celebrate and showcase the borough’s “diverse world cuisine, music and dance”.
Andy Stubbs, Harrow Town Centre Manager, said: “March 17th is the day to come and enjoy a real flavour of what Harrow has to offer.
“It will be a celebration of all the tastes, sights and sounds that make our diverse borough such a great place to visit and live.”
St Ann’s Road will host a farmers market and continental food stalls, street food stalls and a demonstration kitchen. St John’s Road will see 19 professional and community acts on an open air dance stage. Irish dancers will kick off the show at 11am and bring the curtain down after six hours of continuous free entertainment at 5pm.
The event is part of the Council’s programme to revitalise Harrow Town Centre and promote business. It is funded by a grant the Council secured from the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund.
Cllr Keith Ferry, portfolio holder for planning and economic development on Harrow Council, said: “Supporting the town centre and local businesses is a top priority for the Council.”
