New @ Feast for 2017!

West Norwood’s Got Talent! We are proud to announce WiNGiT, our open mic performance space for young people at Feast.

When? At each Feast (first Sunday of the month) from 1pm-3pm

Where? By the DJs at the leisure centre at Feast’s Family Wellbeing hub

Who? The open mic is open to anyone under 20 who has a talent

What? whether you can rap or sing, are in a band or play an instrument, if you do magic or stand-up, love ballet or streetdance – whatever your talent, bring it to WiNGiT!

How? If you want to perform, follow us on Instagram @wingit_feast and message us or email hello@westnorwoodfeast.com and send us what you’d like us to share. Or just turn up on the day and write your name on the blackboard – first come, first up! We will have amp and mics for you.

Why? Let the (West Norwood) world know who you are! Bring your family and friends and perform for us all in a friendly space. There will also be music producers who work on local radio stations there to spot your potential…

Supported by The Portico Gallery, The Rock 926.com, Reggae Britannia & Lightening Radio.

Feast is back! Sunday 2 April!

Spring has sprung and Feast is back!

The sap is rising and the sun is out – and there will be 100 multicoloured stalls all over West Norwood this Sunday! We have a cornucopia of upcycled pre loved furniture and retro kitchenalia, cushions and throws, buttons and bows – and food from virtually every cuisine on earth!

It’s a Garden Feast!

This is the time of year when you re pot your window ledges and dig up your gardens. We have plenty of free gardening activities for you and the kids to do up at the Family Wellbeing picnic & play area – decorate your own compostable flower pot (and plant it with sunflower seeds or cress) and get your hands earthy making seed bombs.

There’ll even be a gardening expert on hand to advise on planting schemes, spring cleaning your garden and what to do with your ailing plants.

And kids can get creative and make flowers out of paper plates, just like this, at Artisan’s on Chatsworth Way!

West Norwood’s Got Talent!

(aka WiNGiT)

Launching at Feast for 2017, a new open mic space for young people! Be sure to come along from 1pm -3pm, and if your young ones fancy themselves as the latest thing, tell them to get up and show us all! No need to book a space, just turn up on the day.

Feast : Entertaining while you shop & eat

Another splendid line up, we think you’ll agree?

Feast Film Nights

We’re loving the West Norwood Free Film Festival – massive thanks to all the fabulous volunteers who put that on for everyone. To keep in with Feast’s Garden theme, April’s Feast Film Night (the monthly incarnation of the festival) is the wonderful Little Shop of Horrors on Sat 29 April at the Book & Record Bar.

See you all at Feast!

Sunday 7 May – Children’s Feast!

We have all the usual stuff happening – you know, great food, great music, great hanging out opportunities, great weather – all that. But as you wander around the one hundred plus stalls, you may notice a preponderance of bears…

“If you go down in the hood today (eh hem, Sunday), you’d better go in disguise…”

Bring your teddies and come to the Picnic & Play area by the leisure centre. There will be rugs and tea sets a plenty, a bear hunt (!) and you can even make your teddy a lovely outfit whilst you’re there.

We also have Wingit, our open mic session in the afternoon for our young and aspiring local talent – hosted by the incomparable Uncle Errol from Word on the Kerb.

Entertainments

There’s also entertaining stuff for the grown ups – here it is.

If you love a bit of Stevie Smith, bring your favourite poem of hers along to PoetrySlabs at the West Norwood Old Library on Feast day – and read it in good company.

WeNo Insider’s Guide blog

Here’s the latest wonderful blog post about those businesses in West Norwood that you maybe didn’t know were there…or did and have never been in….or know and love and wish more people knew about them!

This one is about Hobby’s, a veritable treasure trove of little things to make and do.

May’s Feast Film Nights

This month’s fabulous offering from the volunteer team at Feast Film Nights is Pan’s Labyrinth “One of the greatest of all fantasy films” – Roger Ebert. You can watch this on Friday 26 May at the Book & Record Bar for just a fiver.

See you all at Feast!
