Ealing Jazz

We held the official launch event of the sixth issue of Ealing in London magazine on Monday 6 July, which included a live performance from the Dick Esmond jazz quartet.

Ealing Jazz Festival’s artistic director, Dick Esmond, constructed the quartet especially for the event as part of the build-up to Ealing Jazz Festival which takes place from Wednesday 29 July – Sunday 2 August at Walpole Park. This year marks the festival's 30th anniversary and we were keen to tie this in with our magazine launch event as a showcase for the borough.

The quartet provided music for the duration of the evening and treated delegates to a special performance following the speeches.
