This week's Top 5 things to do in Harrow and the surrounding area:







  • Carrie’s War

Harrow Times:

When the World War II air raids threaten their safety in the city, Carrie Willow and her brother Nick are evacuated to a small village in the Welsh countryside.  Billeted with the kind but timid Auntie Lou and her miserly brother Mr Evans, the children quickly learn that this is a place unlike any they have ever known.

  • Vaughan Summer Fun Day

Take an afternoon to enjoy the rare British summer sun. Peruse the exciting stalls, take part in traditional fete games and tuck in to some international delicacies. The day will also involve dancing, music and a classic tombola.
