Word Up is a leading spoken word organisation in northwest London that has hosted dozens of open mics, writing groups, and online events. Founded six years ago, Word Up has grown into a flagship organisation, giving a platform to poets, rappers, and musicians of all levels through events, writing groups, and their YouTube channel. Through this commission, they will be capturing the voices of Brent and their community, and bringing a collection of dreams to their corner of Wembley Park.
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.
