Even before I started working on the Ealing Summer events, I loved them. You can bring your own picnic, your own drinks (no glass bottles please though - put your wine/champagne in a plastic bottle!) and most of the events are only £1, so its great for a cheap day out. Me and my friends have spent many a summer's day sprawled out on a blanket listening the music and sunbathing. Oh, and when you run out of your own food and drink, there's plenty of stalls to buy from too!
Not sure if it's sad to admit this but the Jazz Festival is one of the highlights of the year for me. Yes it's lazy, I live a 3 minute walk away, but hey I grab some folding chairs,make up copious amounts of pimms and laze in the park for 3-4 nights with friends getting squiffy and letting the music and ambience wash over me - what's not to like ? Been going for 20years or so now,and already booked in friends again for 2009..bring it on !
Each year Ealing hosts a summer festival which includes sessions in one of ealings parks including jazz, comedy, world music, and more. For full details have a look at the weblink. Entry is cheap (some sessions just a few pounds), sessions are during the day and evening, you can take in your own food and booze for picnics. Also stalls and shops at each session. Relaxed atmosphere; great for kids as well as adults. Mainly outside but some sheltered stages.
Ealing Summer Festivals is Ealing Council's flagship event, with its roots set deep in the borough's strong music and comedy history. Set among some of Ealing's most magnificent parks, the festivals bring people together in a collective appreciation of exceptional local and international acts across of range of artistic disciplines.
