The London Festival of Architecture (LFA) returns to Barnet in June for its 20th anniversary. 

The theme for this year’s festival is ‘Reimagine’.

Across the month, beginning on 1st June, over 60 events will take place across the borough, including walks, talks, performances and opportunities to visit.

Barnet Council offered £15,000 worth of grant funding to further support local event organisers via the Barnet LFA Community Fund. Local residents, artists, historians, organisations and more were able to apply for a grant to support new or planned events and activities for LFA2024, on the basis that events were inclusive, clearly benefited Barnet residents, and celebrated architecture and heritage across the borough.

Cllr Ammar Naqvi, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure, Arts and Sports at Barnet Council said: “We’re delighted that the borough of Barnet will be a returning destination for LFA in 2024. The festival is a great opportunity to showcase our architectural heritage in the borough, which defines our unique character. It’s a chance to work with local people and community groups to amplify the amazing cultural offerings and talent we already have here and attract artists and other cultural contributors to come here. Cultivating culture and arts in our borough is more than just an investment in creativity – it’s an investment in our communities and the local economy.”
