Wednesday 8th 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 UWL, featuring talented pianist and Head of Classical Performance at the London College of Music, Emilie Capulet performing a collection of works with a Spanish theme.

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 to showcase contemporary film production as a demonstration of how Ealing's cultural film heart is still pounding.

In parallel, in partnership with the Ealing Club CIC, Paul Jones and Dave Kelly will play rock and blues at the Red Room.
