Wednesday 13th February

As in the past, the festival starts on Wednesday with a special free lunchtime recital at St Mary's Church in South Ealing given in conjunction with The London College of Music, featuring talented pianist and Head of Classical Performance, Emilie Capulet, performing with The Guards Wind Quintet.

In the evening, we have our official launch reception - by invitation only - for our sponsors and performers, to be held at the Pillars Restaurant in Warwick Road.

We will also be screening, later in the evening, a selection of short films by students of the University of West London and MetFilm School to showcase contemporary film production as a demonstration of how Ealing's cultural film heart is still pounding.
