Holiday Feast

Time to get out the knotted hanky and buckets and spades, it’s August, so it must be Holiday Feast!

We’ll be get­ting arty and crafty with hol­i­day themed crafts – mini sand­castle mak­ing and salt dough sea creatures to paint at Artis­ans, whilst over at Fam­ily Well­being, we’ll be dec­or­at­ing paper swim­suits and shorts on the kids activ­ity table and hav­ing fun with more sand and beach­balls.

At St Luke’s we’ll have a brand new folk band enter­tain­ing us, The Con­quer­ing Her­oes – and we’ve heard they do a bit of dan­cing too! They’ll be fol­lowed by Mon­key Wrench, whilst Steve and the Hats and Uff­ing­ton 357 will be doing their thing down at Artis­ans.


Poetry Slabs will be back at the Old Lib­rary with an Amer­ic­an theme this month – fea­tur­ing the work of Pulitzer Prize-win­ning poet Eliza­beth Bish­op, from 2.30–3.30pm. “wry, sly, some­times exot­ic, fre­quently gritty, sur­gic­ally craf­ted and strangely witty”.


Nature is an infin­ite sphere of which the centre is every­where and the cir­cum­fer­ence nowhere.’ Blaise Pas­cal 

The Por­tico Gal­lery will be show­cas­ing the work of young artists in an exclus­ive show, ‘People in Res­id­ence’ bring­ing togeth­er recent gradu­ates from Wimble­don Col­lege of Art. The exhib­i­tion cel­eb­rates unity and com­munity.

The exhib­i­tion is then open to all on Sunday 6th for Feast!


The Book and Record Bar will have Cake Lab, with Alex Pater­son (The Orb) and guests, DJing from 2 until 7 on the Sunday, with fully licensed bar and cake.

As ever, Wingit will be wow­ing us with song and dance from the young people of West Nor­wood.

At Retro Vil­lage, keep an eye out for a vin­tage sum­mer theme, with pic­nic ware, sum­mer frocks, and col­our­ful sun­nies, whilst at the Food Fair we are excited to have bakers Brett and Bailey, reg­u­lars in Crys­tal Palace, at Feast for the first time (Chas and Momo are away for one month, but don’t worry, they’ll be back!).

We’ll also be wel­com­ing back Vegan for Non-Vegan who make amaz­ing pasta and gnoc­chi which is vegan AND glu­ten free, so spread the word to your vegan & GF bud­dies.

So, grab a sunhat and sunscreen, keep your fingers crossed for the weather to hold (it WILL!), and we’ll see you there!
