Put your trainers on this Sunday because we have SO MUCH sporting activity planned! Which obviously means you can feast just that little bit extra because you will be working it all off…
Sports Day for kids!
There literally will be fun and games up at the kids picnic and play area! Egg and spoon type races throughout the day and at midday Moving Matters and Nutty’s Drama and Sports holiday camp doing activities to promote their summer camp!
The Better team from the leisure centre will be doing circuits, boxing, spinning and rowing — AND they will be offering FREE DAY PASSES as prizes for winning challengers!
Feast festival entertainments
Feast’s open mic performance space for young people has a really special line up this month. Be sure to catch some tiny weeny ballerinas from Rose Arts, an inspirational talk by 12 year old Inspiring Vanessa and the Royal Society for Blind Children’s Youth Choir performing at 14.20.
PoetrySlabs are doing readings about bicycles in Bon Velo — who are offering a free pastry to anyone who buys a strengthy Volcano coffee in their shop (get there early, once the cakes are gone, they are gone!)
Local sporting promos!
Those of you who watch our Facebook feed will have seen a plethora of offers from all the local businesses who have any link to sport, health and activity. Here’s just a selection.
The Portico Gallery are offering a Feast day of free yoga.
These guys great guys from FitFunActive will be at the Family Wellbeing hub all day doing energetic kinds of workout things — please feel free to join in (and join up, they have a 45% DISCOUNT for those who sign up to personal training via this link!)

In addition to Feast there are two other events happening this Sunday! We have L’Arche’s Summer Fair at the Gothic Lodge gardens (just a short walk from the Artisans Hub on Chatsworth Way)
And we have another wonderful West Norwood Jumbletrail! You’ll have to walk around ALL of West Norwood to check out everyone’s yards…and then come back to Feast for some R&R (and food).
At the time of writing, this year’s Jumbletrail has 114 participants, if you want to take part you have until midnight to be included on the posters…
The Hainthorpe Tenants and Residents association are also having a tabletop sale — this will on the path right near the picnic and play area so be sure to check it out.
A couple of Feast volunteers work together to bring out a monthly blog featuring one of West Norwood’s businesses. This month it’s the children’s clothing and uniform shop’s turn in the spotlight. Read here all about in An Insider's Guide to...Wear Abouts!
Assuming you are reading this in the week, we still have two Station to Station Food Week events left, the community BBQ at the Portico Gallery on Friday evening and afternoon tea at Frangipani on Saturday.
If you really wanted to see Feast Film Night's screening of Dazed and Confused at the Book and Record Bar last month but couldn’t — don’t worry, it was postponed! It is now on at exactly the right time — the last day of term! This being Friday 21 July…
