Our Programme for 10th to 12th February 2022

We are back - accept no substitutes!

We are continuing with our focus on Ealing's Cultural Heart - Supporting Ealing's Young Artists. We are recognising the legacy that Ealing has developed by coming full circle from the past to the present. This year, we have a modest programme, reflecting the problems that performing artists have faced owing to the Covid Pandemic, not to mention the whole of society.  We have music and a special talking heads evening with Tony Palmer, The Master of Musical Documentary, doing what the Festival "says on the can" - focusing on our Films and Music during the period in the run up to St Valentine's Day.

There will be two major concerts, featuring the Ealing Youth Orchestra and Ealing Symphony Orchestra with Gamal Khamis and members of the London Mozart Players. We also have our local senor school choir, Notting Hill and Ealing High School for Girls, performing in The Planets. We are delighted that, as a counterpoint to a purely orchestral programme, Ealing Symphony Orchestra are performing Tristan and Isolde (Act II).

Education is central to our Festival programmes. Locally connected professional players are again, at our request and as part of our outreach, joining players from the Ealing Youth Orchestra in rehearsal and performance.

As usual, copies of the 2022 Festival Souvenir Programme will be available for purchase during the festival - please buy one and find out more about what is on and where. Many local businesses have sponsored our festival over the years and contributed to the programme - and this will be a chance to find out about many hidden aspects of our Borough.

Remember that, as a Charitable Trust, all our surplus income gets reinvested in the young people of Ealing. Thank you.
