Old pub could be transformed for ‘reggae museum’ in London
The Picture Palace in Harlesden will be renovated as part of the council’s Black Community Action Plan.
An old North London Wetherspoons pub may be transformed to hold a reggae “museum” exhibit in Brent council’s plans to celebrate the Black community. On Harlesden’s Manor Park Road, the centre acquired by the council in 2020 could be used to celebrate the history of reggae and Black history in the area. The Picture Palace will be renovated as part of the council’s Black Community Action Plan, which was initiated after the murder of George Floyd and the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement. The initial ten-year Action Plan aims to celebrate Black heritage, with events such as a pop-up market at the site promoting the “Black pound” selling handmade products celebrating Black culture – with people visiting from as far as Birmingham. In attendance at the event this weekend, Councillor Matt Kelcher commended the plans, citing Harlesden, known for its Caribbean restaurants and Black entrepreneurs, as the “ideal place” for the project.
