Following government guidelines, the South Kilburn Trust has taken the decision to close The Granville until at least 31st May 2020. The building will be closed for all community activities, private hires and managed workspace hire.
We are doing this to help fight the spread of coronavirus and keep people safe.
We are involved in local grassroots community support to ensure that the more vulnerable members of our communities are properly supported through these difficult and challenging times.
We encourage anyone who has time to get involved in the local Mutual Aid Kilburn group, and to notify the group if you know of anyone who needs support. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 3488 4916.
Granville Community Kitchen is also offering support to families and individuals – for details contact email@example.com.
We hope that you stay safe and well, and look forward to welcoming you to The Granville in the future.

South Kilburn’s population is talented, creative and driven. It is an area with many different communities. However it does have higher than average levels of unemployment, poverty, and health concerns, as well as typically lower incomes for those who do work. The South Kilburn Trust was founded in 2011 to help address these issues and create new opportunities.
In 2014, the Trust took over the running of South Kilburn Studios, a well known business incubator and start-up space, which subsequently led to our success in winning funding from the Mayor of London, in partnership with Brent Council, to refurbish much loved old building into a community and workspace hub, The Granville, which re-opened in May 2018.
We were delighted to receive a visit from HRH the Duchess of Cornwall on Wednesday 19th February. Camilla was welcomed by Brent’s Mayor and Chief Executive as well as by our own Chief Executive, Carl Blackburn.
Camilla met a range of people involved in Brent 2020’s Borough of Culture, including the Blueprint Collective, volunteers and people who took part in the amazing Rise opening ceremony.
She walked around a packed Front Room, mingling and talking with a wide range of residents, community groups, volunteers and parents and toddlers from the Granville Plus Nursery School.
Carl then gave Camilla a tour of the creative studios that make up The Granville’s Enterprise Hub, and introduced her to the enterprises that are based here, including Urban Cordial, K2K Radio, Dayo’s Handmade Cards, the British International Education Association and To The T, amongst others.
The Duchess’ visit ended with a performance of Irish and Albanian dance by the Ellis-Parr Dance Academy and Shpresa, and a poem by local artist Just-Ori.
Although the visit was very brief, we were able to show Camilla some of the fantastic work that takes place at The Granville and gave her a warm Brent welcome.
