Join Brent Cross West Opening Day

December 4, 2023

Join us on Sunday 10 December to celebrate the exciting opening of London’s newest mainline station, Brent Cross West.

Brent Cross West will open its doors on Sunday 10 December, and we invite you to have a look at the stunning new station and be a part of a historical day.

Brent Cross West Opening Day

For the early birds, you can come see the first train which is scheduled to arrive at the platforms at 6.47am, train schedules can be found here. Whilst you’re there, you can enjoy a warm cup of coffee from our local retailer Cricklewood Coffee Roasters, who will have a pop-up stall for the day. There will also be food and drinks on offer from local retailers.

Don’t miss out on performances by local steel band JustIn Carnival and an Oompa band who will be playing from 10.30am and in the afternoon.

We also have a small programme of activities taking place throughout the day, starting from 10am. Activities include multiple free family friendly workshops including postcard and bookmark making. Exhibition boards will be displayed in the station for those of you who are interested in finding more about the programme.

You will also have the chance to see the brilliant community artwork created by local artist Elisa Cantarelli, with the help of locals from Barnet and Brent. This artwork will be displayed and unveiled on the station overbridge, which will give access across this part of the Midland Main Line for the first time since it was built more than 150 years ago, making it much easier to get around the area.

Over at the eastern entrance, you will be able to see the colourful architectural panel designed by Giles Round, which was newly unveiled and is surrounded by scenic planting and benches.

We hope you can come along to celebrate with us Barnet Council’s newest station, and bring with you friends, families or neighbours who would love to see the new station.
