Friday 16th to Sunday 18th August 2019 - FREE ADMISSION

 

Building on the success of the 2018 Drayton Court Jazz Festival in Ealing, the line-up for this year's three-day event features many of the UK's top jazz musicians.

 

The Drayton Court Festival is a now widely anticipated jazz event for West London: accessible and popular jazz from well-known bands with local connections, and FREE admission. Dick Esmond who was the co-founder and artistic director of the Ealing Jazz Festival for 30 years says "the line-up for our fourth year is as good as ever, presenting locally led bands at an event without parallel in the borough".

 

The Festival was established in 2016 in response to overwhelming demand from local fans and musicians disappointed with changes to the council-run Ealing Jazz Festival. Now, in the attractive setting of the Drayton Court's spacious garden, the unique local spirit has been restored. In addition to the main stage bands that run through each day, there are performances between sets by a series of jazz duos/trios in the bar area, making for a music filled vibrant weekend of Ealing Jazz at its festive best.

 

This year also pays tribute to the acclaimed photographer and Jazz Festival supporter, John Ross, who died recently. John's photographs over the years have captured the spirit, personality and passion of the jazz festival in Ealing since its start. A display of his work is planned for the Bar area.
