Flower Feast Sunday 3 July!


If you’re going to West Norwood Feast…

…be sure to wear a flower in your hair…

This Sunday it’s a flower filled Feast and we require gen­er­al skip­ping and the wear­ing of flowers (in hair, on shirts, skirts and shorts).

New Feast Community Hub!

There’s a whole new Feast thing to do (if you live in Gipsy Hill ward, take spe­cial note). The won­der­ful Community Shop on Vale Street is host­ing a pop up event with Feast, the Library of Things, Bzz Garage & Open Orchard!

The Lib­rary of Things is hav­ing its launch on Feast Sunday and will be open on the Com­munity Shop site for you to bor­row any­thing from a garden strimmer, wetsuit or circular saw to a whole fleet of hi viz jackets (if you like that sort of thing)(we do).

You will also be able to build your own bur­gers & hot dogs from the Com­munity Shop’s van, made from sur­plus food and only £1.50 each! Yum!

For more inform­a­tion on the day, go here!

Fine Feast happenings

There will be plenty of green fingered activ­it­ies for chil­dren (and adults) to do — like make your own cork garden! You can do this at Fam­ily Well­being, Artis­ans or Fresh n Green (and then take them home to put on your fridge).

The hills of West Nor­wood will be alive with music (and flowers).

Spe­cial high­lights are the Big Sing at the Por­tico Gal­lery with seven local choirs (!!) and a book read­ing at the lib­rary by our very own Feast volun­teer, Car­ron…

There will also be two fun Fam­ily Fit­ness ses­sions up on the grass at Fam­ily Well­being, run by a local fit­ness train­er who will make this a reg­u­lar Feast thing. Get the whole fam­ily up and mov­ing!

And apart from Feast…

To mark the Rio Olympics and a week of cel­eb­rat­ing South Amer­ic­an cul­ture at the Portico Gallery, we are show­ing this won­der­ful WONDERFUL Brazili­an film, Central Station, on Sat 16th July. These screen­ings are run entirely by Feast Film Nights volun­teers and this film is the last of the sea­son before the sum­mer break, so do go along and see it.

See you at Feast!
