Try new activities at our free evening events

Ealing Council is set to hold a series of curated free evening events where you can experience some free and fun evening activities and share your views on how to improve the borough’s night-time economy.

The evening events – or ‘lates’ – are taking place in Acton, Ealing, and Southall later this month. They will help to trial new evening and night-time activities and inform the council’s new evening and night time economy strategy.

The strategy sets out the council’s plan for the borough to be one of the best places in London to go out, work, and run a business between the hours of 6pm to 6am.

The ‘Create Lates’ festival

The ’Create Lates’ festival is taking place between Thursday 25 and Sunday 29 April.

The council has partnered with Colourblind, a production company that specialises in delivering creative events, and a range of amazing local artists and venues. 

The programme of events – funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund – offers a wide range of workshops, classes, demos, and talks – from Indian block printing and salsa to African drumming and martial arts.

The programme includes the chance to learn how to draw historical Islamic patterns in an Islamic geometry class, to join Ealing Pole Studio for a pole fitness and dance session, and to explore Shibori tie dye and come away with your own hand dyed cotton tea towel or t-shirt.

All tickets are free. For full event information and to sign up, please visit the Create Lates website.

‘Try new activities and tell us what you think’

Councillor Louise Brett, the council’s cabinet member for decent living incomes, said: “These events are a wonderful opportunity for our residents to have a fun night out, try new activities, and tell us what you think about the borough at night – what you love, what there should be more of, and what you would like to change. We need your knowledge, views, and ideas to help shape the future of the borough’s night-time.”

You can have your say on the council’s plans for the borough’s evening and night time economy by completing an online survey by Tuesday 30 April 2024.
