May 24th - Alan Bennett fundraising event (UK)

May 24th – Alan Bennett fundraising event (UK)Alan Bennett has become the latest literary figure to join a campaign to save libraries in Brent from closure. The 77-year-old playwright, actor and author is to perform at a May 24 benefit in Kensal Rise to raise money for a legal campaign to save six libraries facing the axe. Lawyers acting on behalf of Brent library campaigners have written to council bosses after they decided to close half the borough's 12 libraries by September. Campaigners have threatened to seek a judicial review unless council bosses reverse their decision to close Cricklewood, Kensal Rise, Barham Park, Tokyngton, Preston and Neasden libraries
