There will be dancing in the streets…

 …of West Norwood this Sunday 7 June – for it is Dance Feast! Time to put your dancing shoes on, people, there will be plenty of opportunities to join in.

We have the 25 strong House of Funk streetdance troop coming to perform at Health & Wellbeing by the leisure centre at 1pm (flying sideways) (they will be showing us all how to do this)

At the Portico Gallery on Knight’s Hill, there will be folk and contemporary dancers, lindy hoppers and REAL flamenco dancers!

The incomparable Jane Ruby will kick off the entertainments on the steps of St Luke’s, there will be DJs at both Artisan’s and Fresh ‘n’ Green and record dealer Heartandsoul will be spinning vintage tunes all day at Retro.

This is the INCREDIBLE entertainment schedule, memorise, save it to your diaries, tattoo it to your bodies.

Socks and rocks

All of West Norwood’s spare socks are being upcycled this Sunday into puppets at the picnic & play area – to the sound of The Rock community radio station at Health & Wellbeing.

There will be lunch bags on sale here too – they were so popular last month they ran out within half an hour so this time we’ve asked Beamish & McGlue to make more!

Furniture, food and fathers…

Apart from all that dancing stuff, there’s also those five Feast market places to visit… the usual faves will be at Feast and a few new faces besides. Retro have Dolly Did It, with some upcycled and recycled furniture and the Food Fair has Japanese street food from Pochi.

We have responded to requests – More food at Health & Wellbeing!! There’s a picnic food stall from the folks at The Great North Wood, yummy cakes from Skye Green, the Tartalettes and Emma (whose cakes are gluten free) as well as more of Warren’s gorgeous jerk chicken…

And remember, it’s Father’s Day this month… there are quirky cards from Stationery Traffic and stylish gifts for men from Johnny & Me at Retro, and if you go down to Artisans, you’ll find plenty of ideas for your Special Old Man…

And finally… Food Week 13-21 June

Feast is bringing you a mid-summer week (OK, slightly more than a week for you pedants) of unique dining experiences in West Norwood! Special menus and events have been created the length and breadth of WeNo (that’s what West Norwood’s called, don’t you know) – from free family picnics, Foodie cemetery tours (indeed) to some very fine dining tasting menus…To find out more and to book your place please visit www.grubclub.com/west-norwood-food-week!

See you all at Feast!
