Explore Brent Cross Town’s Colourful Maze

On Thursday 27 June, Brent Cross Town unveiled a bright, new maze art installation in Claremont Park. Explore the maze this summer, which is free to enter and is open to everyone.

Over the course of three months (end of June to end of September), each month will see the maze with a different colourful artwork, created by three talented female mural artists. The Maze is located near the front entrance of Claremont Park (behind the Visitor Pavilion) and is open daily from 10am to 6pm until 29 September.

Three months, three different artworks

The first month of the maze artwork is already in place, created live over two days (27 and 28 June) by Swedish artist Amara Por Dios, whose work is celebrated world-wide and is filled with different colours and shapes.

The second maze artwork will be in place from Saturday 27 July and will be designed by Brighton-based mural artist Lois O’Hara. The theme of her artwork will focus on embracing positive energy on people and places.

The third and final artwork of the maze will start from Saturday 10 August and will be designed by Josephine Hicks, who is popular for her use of vibrant colours and plants in her artwork. This artwork will also be a part of the London Mural Festival (5-29 September), which is London’s largest celebration of street art. As part of the festival during September, Brent Cross Town will invite people to participate in the creation of a large-scale mural during weekend workshops.

The Maze is suitable for all ages and is wheelchair accessible. It has also been built with sustainability in mind, so the artwork can be moved to a new home in Brent Cross Town after September.

The main park entrance to Claremont Park is adjacent to Brent Cross Town’s Visitor Pavilion.  You can also access the Brent Terrace entrance (at the back of the park) when arriving from Brent Cross West station. We encourage all our visitors to walk, cycle or use public transport where possible.
