The West Norwood Feast is a non-profit monthly market run entirely by volunteers from the local area. The aim is to work together to boost the profile of the area within Lambeth and bring more trade and interest to the high street. It’s also a chance to meet new people and catch up with old friends. With free kid’s activities, four market ‘hubs’ for food, gardening supplies, arts and crafts and vintage and retro curios, as well as live music, there really is something for everyone. From its beginning as a group of strangers meeting for the first time in a pub, the Feast has been powered by a desire for change and unceasing enthusiasm from the people involved. With Space Makers Agency acting as a catalyst, the West Norwood Feast has brought people from the community together to work towards making their neighbourhood a better place to live. More than that, it has altered the way in which people view West Norwood as a place, while at the same time acting as a platform on which to experiment, be creative, try new ideas, and meet lots of new people.
The Feast consists of five market ‘hubs’ – Food Fair, Retro Village, Artisans, Family hub and Fresh ‘n’ Green. These are spread along the high street, the aim being to draw people along the length of the street so that they sit up and notice what amazing resources they have in the shops on their doorstep. We have around 60 stalls in total and these are accompanied by free children’s activities, music performances and workshops.
Our aim now is to make Feast sustainable, something that depends somewhat on the physical re-development of Norwood High Street, but also on the support of the community and volunteers, including new volunteers who we are always delighted to meet.
If youʼd like to get involved, pop along to one of our weekly open meetings held every Tuesday from 6.30pm at the Railway Tavern (warmer months) or The White Hart (colder months) both by Tulse Hill station. Otherwise, you can come and meet us at the next Feast, every first Sunday of the month 10am to 4pm (we’ll be the ones wearing blue hi-vis…), or you can simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more. We’re also on Facebook and Twitter (facebook.com/westnorwoodfeast and @WN_FEAST), so you can keep fully up to date with everything Feast.
