FAQs

How do I get involved?

Every Tues­day even­ing at 6.30pm, we have an open meet­ing at Knowles along Norwood Road. Come along and join us for a couple of hours to meet the groups organ­ising the mar­ket and find out how you can get involved.

If you can’t make Tues­day nights, make sure you sign up to our mail­ing list so we can keep you informed about other ways to be part of the Feast.

I want to have a mar­ket stall — how do I get one?

There are five mar­ket­place hubs at the West Nor­wood Feast, each with its own focus. If you’re inter­ested in hav­ing a stall, please con­tact the appro­pri­ate group:

As a stall­hold­er, you will need Pub­lic Liab­il­ity Insur­ance cover. If you don’t have this already, the Combined Market Traders Insurance Association offer a suit­able policy for £48/yr.

When will the next mar­ket be?

Feast takes place the first Sunday of the month, come rain or shine April-Decem­ber.

Can I hand out my fly­ers at Feast?

If you wish to leave fly­ers or advert­ise at any of the five Feast hubs, you will need to get per­mis­sion before the event by email­ing hello@westnorwoodfeast.com with details of your flyer/advertisment.

As a rule we do not accept any­thing of a polit­ic­al or reli­gious nature or busi­nesses that can­not be vouched for.

We are happy to dis­play leaf­lets for com­munity events ​or local not for profit organ­isa­tions. We will only display/promote private busi­nesses if they have offered services/activities​ ​for free to the Feast going pub­lic i.e. children’s activ­it­ies. This will have been agreed pre­vi­ously via the coordin­at­or.

We request that author­ised leaf­let­ters do not leaf­let by the entrance to St Luke’s gar­dens next to the Feast HQ hub as it causes a bot­tle­neck and nuis­ance to those attend­ing Feast. Organ­isa­tions want­ing to leaf­let the Feast-going pub­lic are asked to go to the junc­tion of Knights Hill and Devane Way near the Fam­ily Well­being hub and leaf­let there.

Please note, if you turn up hop­ing to advert­ise on a Feast day without prior notice, we will have to decline.

How are you going to spread the word?

Local volun­teers have been talk­ing to busi­nesses, organ­isa­tions and res­id­ents around West Nor­wood. We’re keen to make the Feast a cel­eb­ra­tion of all the great things already going on in this part of South Lon­don, bring­ing togeth­er local people and attract­ing new vis­it­ors to the area. If you have ideas or sug­ges­tions for other ways we should be spread­ing the word, please get in touch.

If you use Twit­ter or Ins­tagram and want to spread the mes­sage about Feast, please use the fol­low­ing hasht­ags; #west­nor­wood­feast #first­sunday­ofthemonth
