The Sri Lankan temple in Chapel Road is holding its annual Chariot Festival this Sunday. The Chariot Festival is by far West Ealing’s biggest annual event. We have about 10,000 people attending this event from all over Europe and it transforms Dean Gardens and the surrounding area. This weekend of 8/9th August sees the annual Shri Kanagathurkkai Amman Temple (SKAT) festival come to West Ealing once again. The festival culminates on Sunday with the Chariot procession leaving the Temple around 9am, and then returning at about 12pm via Mattock Lane, Culmington Road, and the Uxbridge Road. Dean Gardens will be full of stalls with Tamil food, lassi drinks, and selling bric-a-brac to fundraise for the Temple’s activities. It’s a great day out for everyone with lots of amazing sights, sounds and tastes.
