This month’s ‘World Feast’ themed stalls and free activities at Family Hub

June’s Feast is a colourful World Feast! West Norwood is a very diverse a neighbourhood and will be asking Feast goers to mark on world maps where their family, friends and West Norwood neighbours are from. We hope to create an image out of this which shows how many different nationalities and languages there are in our neighbourhood. The world within West Norwood!

Unleash your creative side and make your own flag! Whether it’s related to a country you’re connected to, or West Norwood themed, we want your designs. We’ll be displaying the day’s efforts in the Family Hub.

Entertain the family with international games for the whole family, including our supersized chess set!

“The area’s crowning achievement, and a testament to the community spirit in the neighbourhood, is the West Norwood Feast. This hugely popular event held on the first Sunday of the month, from April through to December, is more than just another street market.”
