About Project

North Kensington Community and Youth Festival was set up in 2017 following the Grenfell Tower fire. Our aim for the festival was to: “provide a fun day for the community, to put aside the hurt and pain of the fire whilst commemorating those we have lost and celebrating those who have worked so hard to pull through”. Now in its third year we wish to shift the perception and definition of our area. Our vision is to support the children, young people, and their families living in North Kensington to create an alternative narrative. No longer defined by Grenfell but defined instead by our history of community resilience, our diversity, and our creativity.

Whilst primarily targeted towards the young people living in and around the area of the Grenfell Tower, this year we aimed to make the festival more inclusive and delivered entertainment and activities for all ages including:

Urban Arts - youth stage, dance, live music, talent competition and street artists

Family Fun -sports, inflatables, face painting, arts and crafts, and animal petting area

Community -relaxation and meditation zone, and specific traditional activities (such as bingo and line dancing) targeting older people

Sports-football and basketball tournaments, cricket and climbing wall

Steel pans welcomed the people onto the site, and the thoroughfare was full of information stalls and associated activities
