A new music festival set up in response to cuts to Ealing Jazz Festival drew crowds of more than 500 people on its opening day.
On Sunday (August 21), crowds flocked to the Drayton Hotel in Ealing for the first ever Drayton Court Garden Jazz Festival from midday for a range of music celebrating the genre.
There were performances from Andrew Butcher and Butchers Brew, Winston Morson's Off the Cuff and Dick Esmond's Sound of 7.
And the day, with the weather remaining clear before a spell of rain forced the festival indoors during the evening, also saw Ken McCarthy's Jazz Friends, Liz Fletcher and Marc Parnell.
The festival was set up by the founder of Ealing Jazz Festival, Dick Esmond, in response to Ealing Council cuts to the event he set up 30 years ago in the Plough Inn in Northfield Avenue.
Mr Esmond said: "It was a great day and a tremendous success, we were lucky with the weather as it was very hot during the day and it was really packed.
"I have had so many phone calls and emails saying thank god it is back to the good old days - it gives people something they are missing, we are not going to be kicked around by them (the council).
"It will definitely happen next year and we are looking to do it for one more day.
"The whole thing was brilliant, people were happy and the pub was delighted - the crowd loved it and people were saying this is the Ealing feeling."
He had previously said the new festival as a chance to "set the record straight and show people what they are missing."
Mr Esmond was upset when the council dropped him from his role and reduced the event from five days to two.
The council had capped its spending at £72,000 due to the "poor" attendance for the three days it chose to cut.
In April earlier this year more than 70 campaigners rallied outside Ealing Town Hall in response to the cuts and at this year's event, held on July 23 and 24.
And 16 of the 20 bands who appeared in 2015 chose not to take part in this Ealing Jazz Festival.
