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! Look out for the posters in par­ti­cip­at­ing res­taur­ants and keep an eye on Feast’s social media for more details.

See you all at Feast!
