Christmas Lights @ St Luke’s, Sat 12 December

Feast brings its final event of the year to West Nor­wood on Sat­urday 12 Decem­ber from 4pm to 8pm: Christ­mas Lights, the glor­i­ous Christ­mas mar­ket hos­ted both inside and in the grounds of St Luke’s.

Father Christmas & lantern parades

Santa will be there to turn on the lights that will illu­min­ate the gar­dens of St Luke’s at 4.15 — and he’ll be wan­der­ing around inside like he usu­ally does, chat­ting to small people about what they’d like for Christ­mas.

Chil­dren will all get a chance to make their very own paper bag lan­tern with a (not real) candle inside — we’ll be hav­ing lan­tern parades in the grounds of St Luke’s at around 5.20pm and 6.20pm after the carol singing.

Inside — gifts galore!

This year we have all the lovely artis­ans and makers you come to expect from Feast, all doing what they do best. We’ll have chocol­ates, knit­wear, spices, chut­neys & pre­serves — all sorts of gifts for all sorts of people.

We’ll have the ever pop­u­lar Bunting and Pops with their Santa heads on sticks (for the hungry fest­ive) and the com­pany with, like, the best name ever — Like Sewisously — with their hand sewn kids accessor­ies (for the little trend­set­ters and fash­ionis­tas). Local artist Priscilla Watkins
will be there with her Lido inspired gifts (for the keen swim­mer) and you can even get your front door a present — a tra­di­tion­al Christmas wreath or even a crochet one like this.

And it’s your last chance to pick up a Feast tea towel or a pack of Feast Christ­mas cards!

Outside — lights, hot food and lashings of mulled wine…

This year Feast is put­ting on the light show, we hope you like it.

We know it will be cold so we have hot drinks from Dungarees Coffee and the bar will have no fewer than four pots of mulled wine on the go. There’ll be lots of hot food for big and small people (with child sized por­tions even) from Get Wurst saus­ages, Reg­gae Britannia’s Carib­bean food and Feed me Paella (who, rumour has it, will be mak­ing hot chocol­ate with rum in it). If that doesn’t warm you up enough, we’ll have you all tap­ping your feet to keep warm — with this lovely array of music and may­hem.…
