Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

The news of Haringey’s successful bid for the title was announced by Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, at a ceremony at City Hall on Monday.

Created by the Mayor of London in 2017, the Borough of Culture programme awards grants of up to £1.35 million to London councils to invest in unique cultural events, projects and activities providing a wide range of constructive opportunities for young people.

As well as utilising high-profile cultural spaces in the borough – including Alexandra Palace, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Bernie Grant Arts Centre, Jacksons Lane and Bruce Castle Museum – Haringey’s London Borough of Culture programme will bring arts and culture to the heart of local communities, with community-curated events taking place in all 21 wards in the borough.

The council estimates that the award will involve around 600 local artists and partners and see around 300,000 people participating in cultural activities.

You forgot the Irish Gordon but otherwise your point is well made.

From observation over many years I have come to the same conclusion that 'culture' and 'community' in Haringey is simply code for West Indian and Kurdish. There are many other 'cultures' here.

I'm perplexed by the reference to celebrating 'rebel' culture in Haringey. Is that simply code for left wing activity?

So, greater recognition of Irish culture in England, but less talk of rebellion. OK.

It might only be me, but so many of your and Gordon’s points seem to distil down to just not liking brown people much.

So you say. Quite often.
