Ealing Summer Festival to include torch relay event

Ealing’s Summer Festival will this year include an Olympic Torch relay event.

The Ealing Summer Festival is a 16-day jamboree in July & August, with music, drama and comedy events in the borough’s parks.

The Ealing Comedy Festival will rund for five nights this year, and the famous Ealing Jazz festival will also have a five-day stint in Walpole Park. There will also be a series of one-day events including Opera in the Park, Ealing Blues and Ealing Global music festivals.

The London Mela in Gunnersbury Park will round off the festival, which draws thousands out into the borough’s parks, providing footfall for retailers.

This year Walpole Park will host a special event when the Olympic torch stops-over in Ealing, just three days before the start of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
