The weather forecast looks good for the return of the West Ealing SoundBite Festival to Dean Gardens on Saturday. SoundBite is a free food and music festival for all the family celebrating the rich diversity of the area.
We have a full music programme from 1pm-9pm including local choirs, talented local band Du Bellows, the Brunk Band’s brass punk ‘n’ ska sound and the urgency of Smiley & The Underclass. Also this year a special guest appearances by renowned UK-based Somali musician Hudeydi and Somali funk musicians Dur-Dur Band International. See the full programme on www.soundbitefestival.org
Donkey rides, face-painting, funfair rides, games, Giant Lego and children’s cookery are just some of the activities on offer for younger children whilst a climbing wall, shoot-out football, along with the free wi-fi bus are part of our whole new activity area for teenagers.
On the food front, West Ealing’s Hilltop Roti bring their delicious Caribbean wraps, The Forester pub bring their popular BBQ food and, for the first time, visitors can get a taste of some Somali favourite dishes. Tom’s back with his ice cream van and top quality coffee will be available throughout the day. To tempt visitors to our craft tent we have local honey, apple juice and some hand-made local gifts.
Lastly, remember to visit our community stalls and have your say about how you would like to see Dean Gardens be developed for the community.
