It’s been a hard-fought campaign, but unfortunately Redbridge was pipped to the post by Waltham Forest Borough and Brent who were named as the London Borough of Culture for 2019 and 2020 respectively.
We will continue to work closely with the community, tell your stories and ensure everyone can realise their cultural aspiration.
This Is Redbridge put our communities at the centre of our bid to become the London Borough of Culture.
Being part of the bid has given us the opportunity to show the immense talent in Redbridge, and we will continue to look at ways that we can build on this. We want to put culture at the heart of Redbridge’s future. We already have plans to create a vibrant Cultural Quarter in Ilford and culture is part of Redbridge’s regeneration plan.
There are a wide range of events happening in Redbridge in next few months, and details can be seen in Do More or on the Redbridge Council website.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took part in and supported our bid.
