Cricklewood Town Square
Time Out says
In the northwest corner of London, Cricklewood lays, divided by the bustling high street and little else. Well, there aren't any community spaces like parks, benches or a town hall and Spacemakers are setting out to rectify this. The civic design agency, who transformed Brixton Arcade into the lovely cultural hub that is now Brixton VIllage, are taking a 'town square' around different locations throughout Cricklewood this month to give residents a place to meet and socialise. The pop-up square will start at the grass space next to B&Q (Aug 31-Sep 6); then move on to Keyes Road mini-square (Sep 7-13); followed by the Railway Terrace Steps (Sep 14-20); then the pavement outside Beacon Bingo (Sep 21-27); and finish up for one day at Raft Furniture rooftop carpark (Sep 28).
Spacemakers will be transporting the 'square' around Cricklewood via a rickshaw bike (seriously), dragging a folly filled with benches, stools, games and signs. Once set up, visitors will nto only be able to enjoy the space, but a programme of events too. Including a memorial dance for the lost Galtymore nightclub (Sep 8), a discussion on community-developed public spaces (Sep 27) and rooftop cinema (Sep 28).
