UP FRONT 1 Win a pair of tickets to be among the lucky people allowed to be immersed in a new show with a difference. Take On Me is set in the 1980s. It is being put on by theatre company Dante or Die over the weekend of 22-24 February, after hours at Everyone Active Acton Centre in partnership with Ealing Council. And local people will be involved in the cast, too, after the company called for residents to get involved.

It was chosen in a public poll (on our EalingLondon Facebook page) from a shortlist of six entries. The runner-up was by Neil Davies, and was a photo of steps outside St Mary’s Church next to Brent Valley Golf Course. It was a close call who won out of these front-runners and it was neck-and-neck until near the end. For more on the results, visit Well done everyone who was shortlisted – and thank you to everyone who took part. You can still view all shortlisted entries at UP FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE? After six great competitions, Seasons of Ealing is going to take a break. Instead, we will begin accepting entries on 1 April to a slightly different photography contest – with the winner again being selected by the public and published.
