Ealing is home to Brentside High School, our project partners for the second year of Creative Connections. Described at the end of the nineteenth century as the ‘Queen of the Suburbs’, Ealing had been a fashionable place of residence for some time. The extension of the Great Western Railway in the mid-1800s and the creation of Ealing Broadway station transformed the area, making it attractive to commuters. After the Second World War people from countries and regions including the Caribbean, India, Pakistan and Poland settled in the borough and made it their home. Today Ealing is one of London’s most diverse boroughs.

Ealing has a rich cultural history being home to Ealing Studios, the oldest continuously working film studio in the world, renowned for the Ealing comedies and Carry-On films. The Ealing Music Club, where notable groups such as the Who started their careers, is known as the place where ‘British Rhythm and Blues began’; and Ealing Art College, now part of the University of West London, attracted celebrated artists and musicians to teach and study.
