Piece By Peace Project
This is a project that has been decades in the making. We will be creating a Community Hub for Sundon Park, piece by piece, over the coming decade.
Working in partnership with Luton Borough Council, Luton Parks Department, Friends of Leagrave Park, Marsh House, the local elected officials and various local community groups, organisations and individuals, we are creating a legacy on Leagrave Park.
Our Midsummer Jubilee festival begins a new face for Leagrave Park. One where the community works side by side and hand in hand with the statutory sector to provide events, workshops and activities run for and by the local community.
Our community-led project “Piece by Piece” will launch with the Jubilee Festival on Leagrave Park. Upon approval of location, plant species and tree maintenance plan, will include a tree procession and planting ceremony with Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire Helen Nellis. In addition, we will be creating a Jubilee Garden with art, plants and culture as a space for the community to host events and run activities.
June 26th will mark the start of a project ran for and by the local community. The Midsummer Festival will introduce local residents to the space and highlight what is possible. There will be a large stage area with performers from the local community.
This is a chance for the local community to showcase themselves, their talent and their art. Its a callout to local singers, dancers, poets, visual arts, D.J.s & M.C.s, providers of children’s activities, stalls, gardening, art and talk therapies, workshops and exhibitions.
Working together during the Piece By Peace Project #TheCommunityCan achieve its vision for a creative, cultural, collaborative and cohesive community in which we all thrive.
We are creating a team to meet weekly at the park to help maintain the garden and the Queen’s Green Canopy trees.
The purpose gardening team will be to feed into the wider conservation effects on Leagrave Park, to keep it beautiful for us all.
There are a number of art projects involving the Jubilee Garden and the Pavilion. We are looking for artists that can contribute art that reflects all the shapes, sizes, colours and flavours that is Luton.
