The nearest Tube station is South Ealing which is on the Piccadilly line to Heathrow. Turn right coming out of station, walk to Popes Lane & turn left, or take 65 bus (directly opposite station)
If you are one of the many staying at hotels in Ealing Broadway, the 65 bus will take you to the corner of Popes Lane, from High Street, Ealing (at the side of Ealing Broadway Centre. The bus stop is just outside Limeyard, where I know many of you are partying the night before.
There is on street parking without restriction on Popes Lane.

Singer & writer Nola York has been at many Dusty Days and will join us again in April and will be bringing Sandie, and original member of The Chantelles, who were formed after the breakup of The Lana Sisters.
As we previously announced, there will be a brown leather waistcoat of Dusty’s in this years auction. It has decorative brass buttons.
Pat has also just found a selection of scarves. Smaller items like this prove popular as the bidding doesn’t tend to go "through the roof”.
There are also a selection of music periodicals from the 60s which include items on Dusty.
I’m thrilled to announce that Liane Carroll will be back with us on Dusty Day. He vocals have been a highlight of so many Dusty Days.
Linda Lewis is unable to appear.
Singer Linda Lewis, best remembered for the songs Rock A Doodle Doo, It’s In His Kiss & Remember The Days Of The Old Schoolyard, will make her Dusty Day debut this year, singing The Look Of Love, in her own, inimitable way. A real treat for us all.
I can confirm today that Madeline Bell (top right) will be at Dusty Day on April 23rd.
Other acts appearing include Julie Felix, Simon Bell, a return performance from Joe Card, Krissie Ducann, Leo Elso (Tom from the “Dusty” musical at Charing cross theatre), and our very own Charlie Rowling as his alter ego Miss Krystal Ball (bottom right).
We are waiting to hear back from other stars, and hope they can make it too.
There will be a Dusty Day auction, including a leather waistcoat, which belonged to Dusty.
