The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) is working to empower local people to shape and influence the development plans for UK’s largest regeneration project. In March 2017, we were awarded funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England as part of their Great Place Scheme initiative. This national fund puts arts, culture and heritage at the heart of successful communities. Using this funding and along with local people, businesses and organisations we’ve curated an ambitious, three-year cultural programme that uncovers, connects and showcases the culture, creativity and heritage of London’s largest and most vibrant industrial area, Old Oak and Park Royal.
