The Arts matter
The arts touch all of our lives - whether watching our favourite TV show, listening to music on an iPod or seeing our children perform in a school play. We want to encourage and nurture people’s innate enthusiasm for the arts, but there is a lack of performing arts space in central Ealing serving the borough and surrounding area.
For instance …
Did you know that there is no professional concert hall in London west of the Albert Hall?
Ealing Council has expressed the wish for Ealing to be a ‘leading West London centre for the arts’ - and 2000 local people recently agreed that:
‘An Arts Centre would help fill a yawning gap in Ealing's cultural provision.’
And yet Ealing is still one of the few London Boroughs and significant towns in the UK that has neither an Arts Officer nor a professional performance and arts centre.
We're going to change that.
