ALL ABOUT BEAT
BEAT offers a window into the world of local artists and encourages their passion for creating and will provide an exciting opportunity to broaden the artistic experience, not only for the general public and local community but also for those taking part.
WHAT IS AN ART TRAIL?
An art trail is an event where local artists open their homes, studios or other local venues to exhibit and sell their work. BEAT happens over the course of two weekends every year, during which a map is provided for the general public to find where they can visit around the Borough to see the exhibitions.
WHEN IS THE ART TRAIL?
11 – 12th & 18 – 19th September 2021
We are hoping that many of you enjoy the Ealing Art Trail this weekend and next. We look forward to seeing work by Rossana Henderson and many other local artists.
THE BEAT BROCHURE
The 2021 BEAT brochure can be viewed at this link.
We are delighted that a huge variety of artists have joined us each year to showcase their work. In future, we hope to showcase even more. On this website, you’ll find profiles and examples of the work of all our artists.

At North Ealing Primary School, the Year 6 production has finally come around the corner, making everyone nervous yet extremely excited. At the Looking Glass, North Ealing’s newspaper, we have decided to interview some of the characters of our show, Shakespeare Rocks!
We will start off with Isla S, who is playing the part of William Shakespeare’s wife.
It will be a bit difficult, and since there is lovey-dovey stuff on page 46, that won’t be helping the situation. Anne, however, is an amazing character and I am happy to play her, she told us.
As we moved on, we found the actor for William Shakespeare, Freddie. He (rather reluctantly) told us,
I’m glad I got the part, but since I have 48 lines, it’s not going to be particularly easy.
He then returned to the football match, and we didn’t hear anything else from him.
After that, we went to interview Zak, who is playing the part of an actor who is playing Macbeth in the play. The other people playing actors think his real life name is also Macbeth, but it ends up being MacDonald.
Mac is a nice character, and I’m happy I ended up with him, Zak commented.
This scene is full of humour and is bound to make everyone laugh.
The play is about Shakespeare’s life and includes people that appeared in his life, going from his children to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth I. There are a number of songs in the play, making it a musical as well.
The last actor we interviewed was Lana, who plays Nic, the assistant of Burbage.
I’m quite happy. Nic is bossy and noisy. Reminds me a bit of myself really,” she told us.
Our article doesn’t end here though. We managed to get the opinions of the directors. Up first is Miss Lauren Pitt. She told us,
It’s very humorous and has a good link to the arts. It is amusing, witty, historical and memorable. My favourite character has to be Street, mainly because of the cockney accent.
Next up is Mr Lewis Fisher,
The play is full of charisma and humour throughout and is an experience that one wouldn’t want to miss. Burbage is my favourite character since he is relatable and funny.
Our last but not least interviewee is Mrs Sarah Symes, who teaches class 6S.
I really like the fact that it’s Shakespeare and that the characters were all part of his life;” she revealed, “It’s very entertaining and fun for all ages.
It was great to hear everyone’s opinions on the play, and we hope to do so again soon. Stay safe and remember to come back soon for our Eurovision special!

Self-portrait in masks
This is a ‘Whole School Project’
Pupils across the school created self-portraits of themselves wearing a mask to express how they felt in this unprecedented time.
They were asked:
How did you feel behind the mask?
What do our eyes tell us about how we feel?
This is how we feel behind our masks
Hopeful, safe, funny
Secure, hidden, sad
Trapped, disappointed, hot!
Secretive, protected, happy
Frustrated, breathless, uncomfortable
Mysterious, anonymous, free!
Behind the mask there are forgotten friendships, smiling silent smiles.Eleanor, Year 6

Behind my mask, I’m happy
Behind my mask, I’m free
Behind my mask, I’m amazing
Behind my mask, I’m Me
