Festive Feast, Sunday 3 Dec!

Feast is nearly over for anoth­er year, but as ever, Fest­ive Feast in Decem­ber is set to be (just maybe) the best of the lot. It’ll be cold and bright and there’s lots to do inside too — just read on!

What’s on?

You can start the day with a vegan brunch cooked by local chefs Mango Man and Dan at Beamish & McGlue, includ­ing banana pan­cakes and smooth­ies, from 9.30 onwards. (And if you can’t make it there on Sunday, they’re cook­ing it on Sat­urday too!)

Then wander up past Fresh’n’Green and Artis­ans for your Christ­mas gift shop­ping, pick out a Christ­mas tree at Floral Hall, and head up to the Portico Gallery, where along­side the Bazaar we will be cel­eb­rat­ing the arrival of the West Nor­wood Com­munity Piano with a pian­othon! There will be invited pian­ists play­ing through­out the day, so come along and have a listen.


(this par­tic­u­lar pian­ist doesn’t play that well)

If you’re still look­ing for that spe­cial gift for that spe­cial someone, we have even more for you — you favour­ite Retro stall­hold­ers will be with the arts and crafts stalls at Fam­ily Well­being by the leis­ure centre, so you’ll find all your vin­tage trinkets and gems there. There’s also a brand new DJ there this month, Glen T, so check him out!

Down on Idmis­ton Road just a brisk trot from Artis­ans’L'arche will be hav­ing their annu­al Christ­mas Fayre, where you’ll find everything from stock­ing fillers to Christ­mas wreaths.

Need to warm up? Grab a mulled wine at the Food Fair, or head inside the Lib­rary where there will be storytime and children’s chess and board games.

This will be fol­lowed by PoetrySlabs with fest­ive poems and a chance to help dress the Lib­rary Christ­mas Tree, and finally warm up with some Brazili­an samba.

At St Luke’s, we’ll have fest­ive music inside the church and out, and we will be tak­ing Foodbank dona­tions — so if you have the chance to bring some­thing, it will be very warmly wel­comed.


(this enter­tain­ment sched­ule will be on A boards at all the hubs, so take a photo of it as you pass)

Busy on Sunday? Miss­ing out on Feast? Don’t worry, we’ll be doing it all again next Sunday, Decem­ber 10th when Christmas Lights will be on from 3–7pm at St Luke’s. More info to fol­low soon!

See you at Feast!
