Presented by Wembley Park and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

This September, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra returns to perform in Wembley Park. They will join with local artists and performing groups for Wemba’s Dream – a festival performance of music, dance, poetry and carnival arts that celebrates the unique and diverse communities of Brent.


Featuring new music by contemporary composer Dani Howard, join Mahogany Carnival Arts, spoken word group Word Up, the Sujata Banerjee Dance Company, dancer Keira Martin, guitarist Trevor Brown and the St Michael and All Angels Steel Orchestra for free performances in Wembley Park this September.


When Wemba first journeyed to settle on the hill that would be named Wemba’s Lea (or Wembley), it was just the first of multitudes of journeys from people across the world to the heart of Brent.

No matter who we are, we all take our own journeys that shape our lives in ways we could never expect. From beginnings of hope and anticipation, to the emotional highs and lows of joy, sadness and self-discovery, and the new perspectives we find that change how we see the world.

Celebrate the resilience of those who cross oceans and continents to find a place to call home in their journeys of struggle, overcoming barriers, finding freedom and telling their stories through art.
