If you are heading out to the high street this festive season, make sure you take time to visit the Walking Gallery in Acton.
Comprised of artwork from six local artists, the Walking Gallery pieces are on display in the windows of vacant shop units around Acton Town centre.
Delivered by Your Acton BID in partnership with Ealing’s High Street Task Force (HSTF), the Walking Gallery is part of the Love Ealing, Love Local campaign which celebrates the local businesses in Ealing’s high streets and town centres.
