West Ealing Soundbite Returns
Free community festival in Dean Gardens
Dean Gardens sees the return of the West Ealing SoundBite Festival, a free food and music festival for all the family celebrating the rich diversity of the area on Saturday 8 September.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
Follow the yellow brick road to the Soundbite festival to experience the magical story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz performed by Ealing’s own theatre group A Wonderful Adventure.
A tornado leaves Dorothy and her dog Toto in an enchanted land, inhabited by witches, munchkins, and flying monkeys, but they need to find their way back home to Ealing.
She is sent on a wonderful adventure down the yellow brick road where she meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the cowardly Lion to find the Wizard of Oz with the power to make all of their dreams come true. Come and join the wonderful adventure at 2pm and 4pm followed by a fun activity for children to participate.
This year’s live music starts at 1pm with Stephen Gray, Joe Card at 2pm, Luge at 3pm, Jump 66 at 4pm and closes with the powerful voice of Winnie and the Rockettes at 5pm. Westside Radio DJs will provide music between the acts.
Donkey rides, face-painting, games, circus skills, Crazy Bikes and children’s cookery are just some of the activities on offer for younger children along with a climbing wall and football skills for older children and teenagers.
On the food front, The Forester pub bring their popular BBQ food, Waffle Stick put their spin on the Belgian classic and Tom’s ice cream van is ready and waiting.
