Southall is located on the Grand Union Canal (formerly the Grand Junction Canal) which first linked London with the rest of the growing canal system.
It was one of the last canals to carry significant commercial traffic (through the 1950s) and is still open to traffic and is used by pleasure craft.
It borders the counties of Suffolk and Cambridgeshire to the north, Hertfordshire to the west, Kent across the estuary of the River Thames to the south and London to the south-west. From rock, pop and soul to 40s & 50s swing, there will be music to suit every taste and following last years triumph the final night of the season will see the return of the magnificent Mungo Jerry on 31 August.
