Summertime blues bonanza

Don’t miss Ealing Council’s Blues Festival, the biggest celebration of English blues heritage and culture in West London, in Walpole Park on Saturday, 25 and Sunday, 26 July.

The hugely popular weekend of blues music starts at 2pm on Saturday with Debbie Bond & The Trudats. The day continues with The Spikedrivers, Devil Drives and Dom and The Ikos. The second stage will be welcoming Mumbo Jumbo, Mark Harrison Band and Jump 66 to keep the crowds entertained.

Sunday’s line-up promises a full day of blues musical styles with The Chairs, Mack and Ben Waters all performing on the main stage. The second stage will also be drenched in the sounds of soulful blues with Great West Groove, Stellify and Roy’s Big Smoke Family.

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for transport, environment and leisure, said: “There’s no better way to celebrate in the summer sunshine than two perfect evenings of the Ealing Blues Festival.  Great live music, fantastic street food, flowing drinks and interesting stalls make it an unmissable couple of days to enjoy with your friends and family.”

Entry to the festival is £5 per day, or £8 for the weekend. A seven day option is also available for a combined Blues and Jazz Festivals pass for £18. Children aged 12 and under are free. Tickets will be available on the gate.
