Well, we have come to the end of another year of FEASTs. The team behind FEAST would like to thank everyone for coming along to the Winter Lights on Saturday 7 December, it was a fantastic evening.

FEAST is going into seasonal hibernation, but will be back in March 2014 for I Love FEAST. The market will start on Sunday 6 April 2014. Our Tuesday volunteer open meetings at the Railway pub, Tulse Hill, will start again on Tuesday 7 January 2014, 6.30 – 8pm.
