Highgate Cultural Action Area started in May 2024 and is led by Friction working closely with Highgate Community Support, St. Martin’s Youth and Community Centre, People’s Heritage Co-operative, The Glue Collective  and other local partners and residents.

We will working together to create a more positive and vibrant community in the Highgate area through a regular programme of creative, cultural and heritage focussed activities for and with local people of all ages. 

Cultural Action Areas will play a major role in driving place-based economic recovery by re-animating areas,  with a diversified cultural and heritage offer, new and improved access to community activities and improvements to facilities.  We’re really proud to be playing our part in this and expect to hear more about HCAA activities soon.

The programme is funded through BCC Cultural Development team’s Enterprise Zone – thanks to everyone involved – HCAA will improve community cohesion, business resillience and improve life changes for Highgate citizens, and we’ll have some fun too.
