Ealing Jazz Festival

Ealing Jazz Festival is an annual Summer jazz festival in Ealing's Walpole Park. It was first held in 1984.

In 2016 concern was raised after Ealing Council announced it was to take over management of the festival from "The Event Umbrella". As a result the festival programme was reduced from five to two days of live music and ticket prices increased sharply. These unpopular measures were intended to reduce financial risk. A group of protesters staged a demonstration outside Ealing Council's offices to publicise their objections.
