Take part in RISE, Brent 2020’s spectacular opening event

Take Part in RISE Brent 2020 opening ceremony Wembley Park

RISE is the opening event of Brent’s year as London Borough of Culture. A large-scale outdoor spectacular with a community cast of hundreds, telling the story of Brent through dance, projection, film, and an incredible soundtrack!

Taking place on Saturday 18th January, Brent is looking for people aged 16+, with a connection to Brent, to perform in RISE. 

No previous experience is needed to take part and all abilities are welcome to join in and get involved. You would need to attend weekly dance classes to learn the RISE choreography, which are led by amazing teachers in wonderful venues across Brent. They start on Monday 28th October but can accept newbies up until Monday 4th November. 

RISE will tell the powerful story of this North West corner of the capital – in its activism, writing and athleticism – travelled from the margins to change British culture. Brent is rising – a fragile but precious union of people who make a life in common. It has shown for generations that people from different countries, faiths and backgrounds can live, learn, grow and make a home together. Everyone is welcome!
