The first weekend of July sees Ealing Common become a giant smorgasbord of gastronomic delights with the first ever Eat, Drink, Ealing event, a thrilling, new addition to the programme.

West London’s largest comedy, jazz and blues festivals will be back in Walpole Park in July delivering another year of top-tier acts, with performances from festival veterans and untapped local talent.

The council’s cabinet member for transport, environment and leisure, Councillor Bassam Mahfouz said: “These dates are definitely ones for the diary.
