Brixton is like nowhere else. For many considered the home of Black Britain, it is a place of firsts: Electric Avenue, the very first street in London lit by electricity; Bon Marche, the first purpose-built Department Store in the country as well as the first Marks & Spencer, Franco Manca and Honest Burger to mention a few.
Home to the Windrush Generation, the Uprising in 1981, radical thinkers and activities which have shaped generations. Famous for its diverse music, food and street art scene, Brixton is filled with creativity.
Brixton is underpinned by values such as inclusivity, diversity, equality and justice that are embedded, shared and celebrated every day. A place where people belong and are reflected throughout our public realm. A place twinned with Harlem’s 125th Street BID (NYC) celebrating the common threads between these two radical communities.
