The Ealing Music and Film Festival is back in February for its eighth year of concerts, movie screenings and creative workshops. And, like last year, we have teamed up with the organisers to offer you the chance to win tickets to two of its shows.
So, this Valentine’s week (between 12-16 February), why not leave the chocolates and cards to one side and let the festival light up the grey days and cold evenings?
Its eclectic programme takes in classical concerts, opera, blues, jazz and soul; plus classic films, a play and workshops for budding musicians, future video stars and much more. There is something for everyone – all highlighting the borough’s rich cultural history.
Events will be held across the borough – and, this year, there will be a number hosted by the University of West London (UWL).
As well as a dazzling array of music, and an impressive roster of classic films being screened, there will be several workshops: One on percussion, by Ealing Percussion Academy and London College of Music Percussion, giving families the chance to try out instruments; one on vlogging and on-screen presenting skills; and another, given by LCM College Music Technology Workshop, will offer 15-19 year-olds the chance to create sounds and effects for films and video games and is led by renowned DJ, producer, lecturer Jay Daniel (aka J.Daniel). There will also be talks and the aforementioned piece of theatre, which will see UWL acting students stage Enron.
