THAR SHE BLOWS! The weather forecast is looking seriously windy for Sunday, so we have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel FEAST.
This is a decision never taken lightly, and we are very sorry to disappoint you all, but in high gusting winds, gazebos can be very dangerous, and the safety of the public, our traders and volunteers must come first.
However, many of our traders will be at events on Saturday or available to buy online – we’ll be sharing more details on our social media channels, so please do support them elsewhere if you can. We hope to see you again in December.

Join us at Village Green to shop, eat, drink and play. Here you’ll find all things sustainable and community focused, on the green area outside West Norwood Leisure Centre.

CHILDREN’S ACTIVITY – Free clay modelling and firing
Due to Covid restrictions, we can’t have our usual play and creative activities, provided by Movers&Makers. We hope they’ll be back soon.
In the meantime, local ceramic artist Emma Fenelon has donated some lovely modelling clay which children take home to complete and return to Portico Gallery for firing ( more details when you collect your pack). We will have 60 packs available. Each pack will contain:
*free blobs of clay wrapped in recycled plastic bags (cut up) and upcycled fabric
*fabric wrap to be used as clay work station
*each wrap with clay has a wooden lolly stick, fork and pencil for clay tools
*top tips/ instructions visual to create a plaque provided with the clay
Pop along to the Village Green Hub to collect your clay and get creative!
Wonderful offerings of handmade and artisan goods, including:
Pipkin & Co with their contemporary small batch hand poured scented Danish inspired soy wax candles in colourful glassware. Eight scents including the very festive Glod and Fyr. Made in Peckham.

Please note, due to Government restrictions, sadly you cannot sit on the grass to eat but you can pop up to Village Green and relax on the grass with your tasty bites.
