Performer at Ealing Jazz Festival

Ealing Jazz Festival kicked off on Wednesday. All hope of a warm summer’s evening was lost as the rain poured down on West London. But singer Ray Gelato kept everyone’s spirits up in the packed main tent:

“It’s raining outside, but we don’t care, cos we know we’re gonna rock Ealing!”

The festival drew a mixed crowd – from teenagers, to older jazz fans and there were plenty of other attractions aside from the music, including a massage tent, a hat stall and delicious chorizo for sale.

I’ve got my fingers crossed that the festival will see better weather over the weekend- it’s well worth the bargain price of just £1 for a day ticket (or a fiver for the whole festival!). Even if it does rain, there’s no camping to worry about, just make sure you take an umbrella.
