It’s time to get that Ealing Feeling back!

It’s staycation time in Ealing with the all new Ealing Summer Festivals … it’s glamping without the camping! With all the fun of the summer holiday, but right here at home in Ealing, there will be comedy, Ibiza nights, some of the best music from the borough and beyond, cinema screenings and activities for all ages. Whilst Walpole Park will be hosting the best of ESF with comedy, music, performance, kids’ activities and dining from July into August, the brand-new Ealing Fringe will be showcasing the best of Ealing’s arts and culture in events across the town centres. This will be an unforgettable summer for our amazing Ealing family.

Live Music

Blues and Jazz are synonymous with that Ealing Feeling and this year will be no different as we work with local heroes and promoters to showcase the best of local and touring artists. We will be mixing it up a bit with music from across the traditional ESF programme and this year we are also looking forward to Balearic beats, laid back house and funky tunes.

Food & Drink

Walpole Live will be open lunch through to dinner for amazing food from some of Ealing and London’s best street food traders whilst the Ealing Summer Feast will be a chance for local producers, artisans and chefs to showcase the best of Ealing’s food, drink and craft.

Every step of the planning has been based on how we can keep you safe. With an eye on the news and an ear to Public Health, we are confident we can deliver an events programme that can be enjoyed by all our residents without putting them at risk. The events are all planned to allow us to respond to government guidance and changes to restrictions.

Amos, Nina Conti, The Animals, Sandi Thom, Johnny Vegas, and Shappi Korsandi.

Whilst not all of the normal events can happen in their traditional format, we are looking forward to hosting elements of them all at Walpole Park and we can’t wait until our family is back together again in 2021 for a summer long festival and staycation.

Ealing Fringe is here!

We have had to make a lot of changes to the ESF programme in order to keep everyone safe, but not all changes have been bad ones. Welcome to the inaugural Ealing Fringe!

We are welcoming performers, creative practitioners, cultural organisations and venues to get involved in Ealing Summer Festivals through our Fringe applications. If you are an Ealing resident with an existing event or one in the pipeline happening here in the borough then you could benefit from financial, marketing or production support from the ESF Team. If you are a performer or activity provider who wants to get involved in the multi-disciplinary programme in Walpole Park, then you can apply through the same process.
