Ealing Music and Film Festival 2020 - Nov 2019 Prequels


Welcome to our website focused on our eighth programme

Ealing, as everyone agrees, has a massive world-class heritage of music and film. Our musical traditions include rock, classical, jazz and voice; our film studios defined the British Film Industry; all around the Borough, streets, houses and parks are used for location shoots.

Our annual festival programme has developed year on year, focusing on music and film around the theme of Ealing's Cultural Heart. We believe that Ealing's cultural past has come full circle and our cultural present is all the stronger for it. There is now an incredibly rich and growing heritage for us to include in terms of both composers and performers - of all genres and ages. With this in mind, we always have an eye on our local young performers, showing them what they can achieve and using the surplus we aim to generate to give scholarships and grants to young artists in the Borough to give them the support they need to develop their skills.

Our aim for 2020 is, as before, to bring together world famous musicians, actors, film producers and a host of celebrated local performers to give us all an insight into their artistic world, bringing their talents to as wide an audience as possible - and inspire our younger generations to keep building on our heritage.

The Festival is organised by a charitable trust formed by a small group local residents. Looking to the future, we are delighted to announce that we are forming a long term partnership with the University of West London, specifically the London College of Music based here in Ealing. This will enable us to expand both our range of events and also our charitable outreach to young artists in Ealing.

Thank you in anticipation of your support in the years ahead - 2020 and beyond!
