High streets are on the move again and Udenson Caldbeck Associates (UCA) is glad to be working with the Wealdstone Traders Association to hold a series of discussions that will help to shape the area’s plans for improvement.

The Wealdstone Conversations project is currently engaging the views and opinions of Wealdstone’s diverse communities about both opportunities and issues of concern in the town and its public spaces. These discussions will help to shape improvements in Wealdstone by working towards a cohesive vision, including a funding application to the Greater London Authority to develop a spatial strategy for the area and to assist in animating and activating underutilised buildings and public spaces in Wealdstone.

As part of the project, Wealdstone Traders Association will be hosting a Cultural Music Day on Saturday 2 October, which is being curated by UCA. This vibrant community event will take place from 12pm-4pm in Wealdstone Square. With a mix of both local and professional performers and a range of exciting activities, the event aims to both provide a fun day for all and an opportunity for community dialogue as part of the Wealdstone Conversations project.The Wealdstone Conversations Cultural Music Day will bring Wealdstone Square to life, showing the potential for future community events and activities.

The event’s on-stage programme will include music from Afro-funk and Highlife band Odinani, vintage sounds of the 1940s from the London Belles and songstress Pandora’s Diary, as well as a variety of performances showcasing the talent present among Wealdstone’s local groups. You won’t want to miss the staff of businesses in the high street who will be showing off their cultural dance moves. The event is free and open to all.

Unhar Gupta, Chair of Wealdstone Traders Association, said: “The Wealdstone Conversations Cultural Music Day is a great opportunity to come out and enjoy the Square with a day of music and entertainment. We are looking forward to speaking with local people and bringing the community together at this fantastic event.”
