Eat, drink, shop – and come to watch twenty talented young people perform all afternoon on Feast’s ‘Main Stage’ (AKA steps of St Luke’s) as part of Junior Open Mic (JOM) @ Feast!
Feast volunteers and the Norwood Forum team will be helping children create window stencils for their homes to take part in Window Wanderland in Wild Norwood!
At Family Hub the kids have a packed programme of fun activities! Kids can unleash their creative side by making their own rockets, painting firework displays and you’ll find face painting there too.
Bookmark Reading is an initiative to help children learn to read. Started in Camden last year, the reading programmes have rolled out to the rest of the city. Come along to their community stall to find out more about the scheme locally, and how you can become a volunteer.
Look out for the Green Stalls @ Family Hub near the Leisure Centre. You can spot them because they have green canopies!
Since April the stalls have been hosting groups that promote ways to live sustainably (which is the real reason they are known as green stalls!). Feast are subsidising the stalls as a community initiative and a dedicated group of volunteers are supporting their development.
Groups we’ve hosted so far include: Plastic Free West Norwood, Groundwork London, Norwood Planning Assembly, Lambeth Community Solar, Lambeth Friends of the Earth, The Library of Things …
