Since 1987 Walpole Park in Ealing has played host to a one-day festival of Blues which returns to the west London park each summer. The location is an appropriate one to host such a festival, being the birthplace of British Rhythm and Blues, a scene that started in Ealing in 1962. They often have a high calibre of perfomers and listening to the Blues & Rock and Boogie Woogie musicians perform in the beautiful surroundings of Walpole Park is an appealing prospect on a lazy summer's day. Host band of The Ealing Blues Festival, The Guv'nors usually close the show with the popular Festival Closing Jam Session. The festival is organised by The Ealing Club (or Ealing Jazz Club), one of Ealing's legendary venues where the British Rhythm and Blues Boom of the 1960s kicked off.
Walpole Park is Ealing's main place to head if you want to be at one with nature and it's got some very pretty parts. For a truly peaceful afternoon take a good book and make a beeline for the walled garden - this is particularly beautiful in June when the roses are in bloom. More about Walpole Park
