Animate to Activate

Posted on 2 December 2014

If you enjoyed the Christmas Lights Switch On, Cricklewood Festival and other events that have been taking place recently in Cricklewood, you'll be happy to hear that the Town Team is planning to do even more to activate the town centre in the months ahead: creative workshops, innovative events, specialty entertainment, and visiting markets on Cricklewood Lane, plus fantastic activities at the 2015 Cricklewood Festival.

We have just launched a new crowdfunding project on Spacehive, as part of an application to the Mayor's High Street Fund, and we hope you'll support us. We're asking Cricklewood to help kick off the crowdfunding with small donations of any amount from £5, and to start spreading the word. We hope to raise £20,000 between crowdfunding and a grant from the Mayor, and Barnet has already pledged £5,000 in match funding! 

 Every supporter will have their name listed on, will be invited on stage at the 2015 Cricklewood Festival, and be invited to a special networking evening to kick off the Festival.

Check out our project at and please consider supporting this great initiative for Cricklewood before 31st January 2015.
