WATCH: Classic Hanwell music festival comes to Acton

A classic Hanwell music festival uprooted for a day to put on a gig in the heart of Acton. The Hanwell Hootie left its traditional home to help Your Acton BID and Ealing’s High Street Task Force put on a music festival in Acton Mount on 9 October. Acts including Tommy Hare, Lola Aviva and The Wise Bloods played at the foot of St Mary’s Church, entertaining locals with a mix of country, blues, soul and reggae as crowd numbers swelled through the day.

The Protocol: Where are we now, and where does NI go from here?

Northern Ireland is now eight months into its halfway house of the Ireland/Northern Ireland Protocol, a period which has been underscored by two switches to the DUP leadership, loyalist protests fomenting more widespread unionist disquiet, the progressive pulling of popular products from supermarket shelves, and recent warnings of an invocation of Article 16 by the UK Government, which would effectively take Northern Ireland out of the EU Customs Union.
