Our 2012 awards were presented by Tony Palmer, the television and film director and author, at the Town Hall on 27 November. Tom Jestico, from our architects’ panel, talked about the 9 shortlisted buildings and landscapes before the 3 winners were announced. Full details of the winners are on our Awards pages. Following the presentation of the Awards, Tony Palmer talked about the importance of Ealing’s artistic inheritance. The arts, particularly music and film, have been and still are a major feature of Ealing life. The provision of good arts venues should be an essential part of the regeneration of the Borough. Ealing Music and Film Valentine Festival in February will be a small step in the right direction.
