Tickets are free; however any donations are welcome and all money raised will go back into supporting creative activities in Brentford.

This show will be hosted by Brentfordian comedian Jim Kent, who recently starred as Dame Trot in St. Faith’s Players 2020 pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, at Watermans Arts Centre.

Finley Neilens, CPP Hounslow’s Brentford Community Arts Worker said of the event; “We’re putting on This is Brentford for the whole community. It’s going to be a fantastic evening celebrating community and filled with a diverse array of creative talent. Seeing people new to their craft sharing a stage with experienced performers is going to be very inspiring, and extremely special.”
