History Feast this Sunday 4 September!

West Norwood has history, find out at Feast!

This Sunday 4 Septem­ber we are cel­eb­rat­ing our neighbourhood’s rich his­tory — whilst eat­ing well and enjoy­ing ourselves at Feast, obvi­ously…

All our usual traders will be there — and remem­ber, at the leis­ure centre’s Fam­ily Well­being hub, all food traders have a dish that is £5 or less, many have child-sized por­tions and there are always Feast made kids lunch bags for £2.50.

News Alert! Retro will be held in the Por­tico Gal­lery across the road this Feast — Rosebery’s Auc­tion House need their car park…

War poems & recipes

The friends of West Norwood cemetery and PoetrySlabs are col­lab­or­at­ing on Feast day with a his­tory and poetry tour to com­mem­or­ate 100 years since the Battle of the Somme.

We have anoth­er pop up event at the Community Shop on Vale Street this Feast. The kit­chens will be cook­ing up war­time recipes and using loc­ally grown pro­duce (you’re wel­come to bring your own if you have any) — which you can then eat, for FREE!

Traditional lullabies, old photos, history quiz — and lots of music!

Take your tinies to the lib­rary at 2.30pm to meet Musical Bumps for some singing and bash­ing of instru­ments to old fash­ioned nurs­ery rhymes.

If you have no tinies, how about doing a West Nor­wood his­tory quiz? There will be cop­ies of it at the vari­ous Feast hubs, just ask a volun­teer. The prize is a lovely West Nor­wood Feast bag!

St Luke’s also has an exhib­i­tion of old pho­tos of West Nor­wood if you’d like a browse…

Look out for one of these snazzy enter­tain­ments leaf­lets at any of the Feast hubs, oth­er­wise mem­or­ise NOW. Too much too miss oth­er­wise…

West Norwood Photography Competition!

Feast volun­teers are launch­ing a fab pho­to­graphy com­pet­i­tion for any­one who has, or wants to take, pho­tos of West Nor­wood. We will col­lect in the sub­mis­sions and have a panel of illus­tri­ous judges who will choose the win­ners before December’s Feast. Here are the details, now get click­ing!

See you at Feast!
