Join the creative community in Cricklewood on Monday next Dec 7th at 8.15pm, in The Mezzanine, upstairs at The Crown Hotel, where we’ll be putting together our plans for 2016 (hint: they’re rather exciting), then enjoying a cuppa (or whatever you’re having yourself) and a get-together, to the background sounds of Dave Parratt’s inspiring guitar instrumentals.
There are lots of new, creative happenings in Cricklewood, thanks to the activity of Clitterhouse Farm project, the residents’ associations, NW2 and Mapesbury, the town team and the new community library.
This library on Olive Rd, which is inching up as we write, will provide Creative Cricklewood (CC) with what we’ve so long needed: a dedicated, suitable space for workshops, events and all sorts of creative doings.
We’re very excited!
So do come along and meet with the CC team, Sally from the library, Wendy our fundraiser/web designer — and we’ll have a special presentation from Argent Property Developers, who are going to be developing Brent Cross, and who are interested in meeting the writers, artists and creative folk in our area.
Argent’s interest, and investment, in creative renewal is evident at their King’s Cross development and is good news for all creatives in Cricklewood.
Their representative Andrew Turner will be there to answer your questions, find out about your work and discuss creative possibilities.
Our thanks to The Crown Hotel, which is providing the room and refreshments.
If you have a few hours to spare to help our efforts, we’ll be putting a “Tell The World Team” together, to help make more great things happen — and spread the word, online and through the media. We’d love you to be involved.
Let’s fill our town with writers and artists!
See you on Monday, 8.15pm, upstairs at The Crown.
PANAMA DAVE PARRETT
“Panama Dave“, together with artist Henryk Terpilowski and other CC members, have been putting together a regular Creative Cricklewood Open Mic and Art Show since 2012. So far it has run for 70 shows in a little under three years, at the Windmill Bar on Cricklewood Broadway. At the moment, it is in hiatus, as the Windmill has once again closed to the general public. Watch this space. In the meantime, Dave is to be found gigging all over town and when at home in Cricklewood, teaching guitar.
‘Possibly the best guitarist playing live in London at this time’
