Wemba's Dream with Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Wembley Park

Wemba's Dream

With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Join Wembley Park and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for a free, day-long performance experience festival using music, dance, spoken word and theatre to bring to life the hopes, ambitions and fantasies of the people of Brent.

Many moons ago, a traveller called Wemba stopped and created his home here in Wembley. He was the first of generations of dreamers who have made Brent their home. And we want to celebrate those dreamers with a free festival of performance experiences, created and performed by the people of Brent.

Wemba's Dream

Exploring spoken word, contemporary music, accessible experiences, exhilarating dance and hypotonic graphics, Wemba's Dream brings together the best of Brent into four unique sensory art pieces, performed throughout the day across the neighbourhood. Immerse yourself in the productions as each creative delves into the world of dreams, aspirations and nightmares in their own way, just as Wemba dreamt and aspired of the Brent of today.

As part of a shared vision between Wembley Park and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Wemba's Dream event on Saturday 11th September aims to establish a creative hub in the neighbourhood bringing together education, community outreach, performance, digital projects and administration to create a sensory festival across a number of performances.
