Holiday Feast, Sunday 7 August!

Holiday! Celebrate!

If we took a hol­i­day
Took some time to cel­eb­rate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice…”
— Madonna
It’s August Feast this Sunday, the weath­er looks cheerful (isn’t it always?) and we’ve got a whole day of enter­tain­ing ourselves togeth­er. Here’s what’s hap­pen­ing, people.

Feast — entertaining your ears & feet all day

Along with the usual food and gor­geous things to buy, we’ve got all this music stuff hap­pen­ing, such a line up!

We have a NEW VENUE (!!!), the Book & Record Bar, with DJs play­ing right through from mid­day until 7pm (long after Feast has gone to bed).
DJ Food & Pete W kicks things off at 12pm with a two hour Out of the Wood radio show hos­ted by WNBC.LONDON  Radio… (that’s the West Nor­wood Broad­cast­ing Com­pany to you and me, an inter­net based radio sta­tion).
From 2pm, fresh from the tri­umphant Adven­tures Bey­ond The Ultra­world 25th Anniversary Orb gig at the Elec­tric, Dr Alex Pater­son presents Cake Lab, an after­noon of ambi­ent music, a return to the Chill Out rooms of his early DJing days. With guests includ­ing George Holt and lots of cake, of course. Fully licensed bar and Vol­cano cof­fee also served..

The Por­tico Gal­lery comes alive in the after­noon with the delight­ful folk from Cut a Rug who will be enter­tain­ing you all with a great line up of bands.

PoetrySlabs are doing their usual Feast thing in the lib­rary — and if it DARES to rain, check out the bits of poetry they have around West Nor­wood…

Eggs & spoons, lollipops, bubbles & beer

It’s all going on at Fam­ily Well­being. We have the return of the much loved August activ­ity — Feast Children’s Sports Day — three legged races, egg & spoon, sack races — the works. There will also be giant bubbles to chase.

If all of that is thirsty work (for par­ents, just watch­ing, as well as the kids), check out our new­est edi­tion to the leis­ure centre hub! Meet Stan­ley, the Beer Cab, whose two own­ers will serve you craft beer and soft drinks from his con­ver­ted innards.

And if your kids are still keen and lively after all that, down at the Artis­ans’ hub on Chats­worth Way there will be all sorts of sum­mery things to do with lol­li­pop sticks — boats, but­ter­flies, fish…

And at Retro on Knight’s Hill you can even dec­or­ate a cup­cake should that be your wish.…

Who needs to go on holiday when you can come to Feast..?
