Keith Townsend, Executive Director of Environment and Customer Services said: “The evening celebration will be the highlight of an historic day for Ealing as the torch makes its way there. It will be a great way for all the family to enjoy the exciting countdown to the games just days later.”
Residents and businesses are also being encouraged to take to the streets to cheer on the Olympic torch relay as it travels through the borough.
The Olympic flame begins its journey through Ealing at Northala Fields, in Northolt and torchbearers will then carry the flame towards Southall and along the Uxbridge Road through Hanwell, West Ealing and on to Ealing High Street, Ealing Green and St Mary’s Road, before reaching the celebration at Walpole Park.
Among the torchbearers will be Brentside High School pupil Sydney Richards and Southall resident Tom Thacker, who were chosen from dozens of nominations by Ealing Council to carry the flame.
Sydney’s mother, Deanne Straker said: “It will make me so proud to see Sydney carrying the torch. Our family and friends will all be out there to cheer her on the day.”
