A colourful retail parade
Timeline 2012 - ongoing
Queens Parade in Willesden Green launched in March 2012 as part of the Outer London Fund Project, New Windows on Willesden Green. Having negotiated a rent free lease with the landlord, Meanwhile Space worked with The Architecture Foundation and Blue Consulting to put out a call looking for new businesses and ideas to fill the eight vacant units. Just two months after opening its doors, Queens Parade was voted by Time Out readers as one of nine best shopping locations in London, and still continues to hit headlines. Offering something a bit different from existing businesses in the Willesden Green area, all spaces offer community workshops and skill exchanges. With the lease extended to November 2018, there is so much to see in this great example of innovation on the high street.
